 Lawyers in the Library: Free legal aid clinic comes to Downtown

Starting in December, the Downtown Huntsville Library, through a partnership with the Madison County Volunteer Lawyers Program (MCVLP) will offer regular legal aid clinics to the public called “Lawyers in the Library.”  The clinic will be held on the third Thursday of the month, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in meeting rooms C and D on the second floor.


“The goal of the Lawyers in the Library clinic is to contribute to the Madison County legal community’s effort to help individuals who cannot afford private legal services by coordinating and facilitating access to information, advice, and referrals provided by local volunteer attorneys,” said Nicole Schroer, Executive Director of MCVLP.


Appointments are not necessary as participants will register on the day of the clinic and will be seen on a first come, first served basis. At the clinic, licensed volunteer attorneys will conduct free consultations, assessments and referrals with clients who have legal problems and concerns.


Volunteer attorneys help with matters including, but not limited to, family law, landlord and tenant issues, guardianships, small claims, bankruptcy, debt collection and public benefits.  Volunteers may not have experience in all areas of the law.


The first clinic will be held on December 19. For more information, please visit
