Tucsonans with legal issues or basic law questions have an opportunity to receive free advice from qualified attorneys.

The Arizona Bar Association has a free legal aid clinic planned for Tucson on Saturday as part of national Law Day.

“We tell people this is a great place to get direction,” said Rick DeBruhl, spokesman for the Arizona Bar Association.

Local attorneys will be available to provide one-on-one consultations on legal issues in the areas of family and immigration law.

Depending on turnout and allotted time, people could expect to spend as much as 15 minutes speaking privately with an attorney who could provide useful legal advice. Attorneys won’t be able to provide referrals.

Attendees can bring legal documents for attorneys to review and answer specific questions or seek more general advice on legal matters. Consultations will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.

The immigration clinic will focus mainly on federal immigration matters, although some state laws are applicable. A Spanish-speaking attorney is scheduled for the immigration clinic.

The family law clinic can help with questions about divorce, child support and paternity issues.
