Free Legal Help Clinic


Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands will be offering a free legal help clinic on the morning of Saturday, Nov. 2,  at the Grundy County Housing Authority, located at 187 Raulston Ave., Monteagle. People who want to meet with a lawyer should come anytime from 9:30 a.m. until noon.

The Grundy County Legal Help Clinic is supported by the Office of Civic Engagement of the University of the South, the law firm Burr & Foreman LLP, and local lawyers. The clinic will assist with many civil legal issues: powers of attorney, advance healthcare directives, landlord/tenant issues, employment, debt collection, bankruptcy and public benefits (such as TennCare, SNAP and Families First).

Clients need to bring any paperwork that they would like an attorney to look over, the name and address of the person who they would like to be their power of attorney (if applicable), as well as proof of their own identity. Clients should arrive before 11:30 a.m. to ensure they can meet with an attorney.
