IMMEDIATE RELEASE - August
FREE CONSUMER LEGAL GUIDES AVAILABLE AT
STATE BAR ASSOCIATION
Need legal information about a will, bankruptcy, nursing
home admission, automobile accident, divorce, child custody or other
legal issue? Maryland consumers who seek basic information about the
law should call the Maryland State Bar Association (MSBA). MSBA offers
consumers a series of 24 legal information pamphlets free of charge
as a public service. These legal guides give consumers basic information
about common legal problems so they will be better informed when dealing
with issues affecting their families.
The brochures, prepared by volunteer attorneys who are MSBA members,
help people buy homes, file for workers’ compensation, understand
complex health benefit issues and deal with domestic violence. The pamphlets
also help consumers know what to do when they receive a traffic ticket,
are in a car accident or are arrested. Information on when they need
a lawyer is available, too.
MSBA gives these free brochures to Maryland consumers as a public service
to help educate the public about the law and promote a better public
understanding of our legal system. The series of 24 brochures is available
on MSBA’s website, www.msba.org,
by clicking on public resources. Any member of the public who wants a
copy of a brochure should contact Jason J. Zeisloft at MSBA: email – JZeisloft@msba.org or
phone (410) 685-7878 extension 3028.
