Volunteer Attorneys Give Free Debt Collection Consumer Education Clinics in Decatur, Georgia
Recently covered in the Daily Report, “Clinic helps public fight off debt collections“, the Consumer Education clinic on Debt Collection sponsored by the DeKalb Volunteer Lawyers Foundation has proven to be quite a success. Since March 2012, volunteer lawyers have held the debt collection clinic numerous times.
The next clinic is scheduled for Tuesday, October 23, 2012 from 5:30pm-7:00pm in the Ground Floor Meeting Rooms of the Decatur Library located at 215 Sycamore Street, Decatur, Georgia 30030.
The debt collection consumer education clinic began in March 2012 and the clinics are held approximately 2 times per month on Tuesday evenings at the Decatur Library. The clinic is free to the public and anyone interested is encouraged to attend. The clinic begins with a brief presentation by a local volunteer attorney who will discuss the basics of what to expect when facing a debt collection lawsuit. After the presentation, attendees who wish to do so are given the opportunity to meet individually with a volunteer lawyer to ask specific questions regarding their situation.
