(MILWAUKEE) – Milwaukee County Supervisor Khalif Rainey today encouraged his constituents with legal issues to visit the “Milwaukee Justice Center Mobile Legal Clinic” when it visits the John C. Cudahy YMCA, 9050 N. Swan Rd., on Saturday, September 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The clinic will visit the YMCA site every month through the end of the year. The clinic, located in a specially outfitted bus, is designed to provide free, brief legal advice to individuals who need it but are outside of areas that are currently served by volunteer legal services.

“For people who have legal problems, but don’t have ready access to a lawyer, this is a quick, easy and accessible way to get free legal advice,” Rainey said. “This service is especially important for underserved areas, including some areas of the 2nd District.

“I encourage those with legal questions or problems to use this service and consult with one of the attorneys in the clinic. It will help start to find solutions to legal problems and determine how individuals should proceed once they have this advice.”

The clinic will also be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on:

  • Saturday, October 19
  • Saturday, November 16
  • Saturday, December 12

According to Marquette University, the Mobile Legal Clinic is believed to be the only service of its kind in Wisconsin, and one of only a few in the country delivering legal services to underserved areas. It is operated by the Milwaukee Justice Center, a collaborative project of the Milwaukee Bar Association and the Marquette University Law School.
