Lower 9 Consumer Debt Clinic Saturday 2/11, sponsored by Pro Bono Project & Common Ground Relief Legal Clinic

On Saturday, February 11, the Common Ground Relief Legal Clinic and the Pro Bono Project of New Orleans will offer their monthly "Consumer Debt Clinic" at the Common Ground Relief Legal Clinic, 1800 Deslonde Street in the Lower 9th Ward, from 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM.

Visitors can meet with experienced local attorneys to receive free legal assistance with debt problems, bankruptcy, foreclosure and creditor harassment. In addition to answering questions on the spot, where possible the program will seek to provide ongoing, free assistance to those in need. While we hope the location of the program will make it particularly accessible to Lower 9th Ward residents, all are welcome.

Walk-in visits will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, however we prefer that potential participants call the Pro Bono Project at (504) 581-4043 to schedule appointments.
