ask a lawyer(STILLWATER, OKLA. / April 17, 2014 ) —Payne County Bar Association (PCBA) and Stillwater Public Library will co-host the annual “Ask-a-Lawyer” at the Stillwater Public Library on Thursday, May 8 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Citizens ofPayneCountyare invited to meet with an attorney face-to-face and ask legal questions free of charge.   

 “The Payne County Bar Association is excited to be offering the free services of our attorneys to the community again this year,” said Robyn Baker, local attorney and PCBA president. “As attorneys, it is important to us to give back of our time, particularly to folks who might not have the resources to hire an attorney.”

Time with an attorney is confidential and the meetings are held in individual, private rooms.  Event participants do not need an appointment to attend and questions will be answered on a first come, first served basis.

“The questions answered at past ‘Ask-a-Lawyer’ events have widely varied, so the PCBA tries to schedule attorneys during each hour who have different types of practices,” said Stacy DeLano, adult services librarian.

Frequently asked questions include those involving family law, child support and custody, real estate, wills and trusts, business and incorporation, consumer law and bankruptcy, criminal law and personal injury.

“If the attorneys present can’t answer your questions, they are very helpful about trying to refer you to another resource,” said DeLano.

Baker added that “while lawyers will be on hand to discuss citizens’ legal questions, they will be unable to answer case specific questions regarding pending legal actions.” 

“Ask-a-Lawyer” is free and open to the public.  For more information, call (405) 372-3633 x8106, visit the web site at http://library.stillwater.org or e-mail askalibrarian@stillwater.org.

The Stillwater Public Library is located at 1107 S. Duck St. (the corner of Duck and 12th Ave.).
