Arcadia Celebrates 12th Annual Law this Saturday – Financial Advisors Return for Second Year of Participation

For the twelfth year in a row the City of Arcadia and the Arcadia Chinese Association will be offering a free Ask-a-Lawyer Program at the Arcadia Public Library this Saturday, May 8, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The project is part of a nationwide Law Day celebration.
Volunteer attorneys will be available to meet with the public and provide free brief one-on-one consultation regarding general legal questions. Participating lawyers will provide a summary of legal rights and general advice on a “walk-up” basis and, where appropriate, will refer individuals to the proper legal or governmental organizations. In an effort to avoid the event becoming a marketing event for local lawyers and firms, participating Law Day attorneys are unable to accept any cases from the people they meet.
Topics may include such issues as immigration, consumer rights, landlord-tenant issues, insurance problems, property, family law, bankruptcy, government benefits, employee rights, workers’ compensation, personal injury and other topics. Informational brochures and pamphlets are available as additional legal resources.
The addition of financial advisors at last year’s Law Day was very popular and beneficial to many of the people who attended the event.

“In these economic times, the City of Arcadia and the Arcadia Chinese Association thought that the public could truly benefit from not only answers to legal questions but also financial questions that undoubtedly arise,” said event chairperson and Mayor Pro-Tem Gary Kovacic. “Our goal is for the various volunteers to provide the public with as much information as possible. Law Day helps hundreds of people every year, thousands of people since the event’s inception. With financial advisors, Law Day offers one more area of information to people who may be able to benefit from some professional input.”
Participants are encouraged to bring any information pertinent to their case so the attorney or financial expert is able to give the most accurate and reliable advice. No reservations are required for this free service and everyone is welcome to attend.

“We are very proud to continue our co-sponsorship of this worthwhile community event. Offering a service that will guide the public in the right direction regarding their legal issues is extremely important and fulfilling. Our association and the numerous directors, who volunteer their time at Law Day, feel very pleased to be a part of this vital program. Each year we see an increasing number of people lining up early in the morning for this event.

Law Day has become very popular year after year and we might even need a larger location next year,” said Pearl Chen, President of the Arcadia Chinese Association. More than 26 volunteers from the Arcadia Chinese Association will provide event day coordination, refreshments and assist in language translations where needed. Translation services will be available in Mandarin, Cantonese and Spanish. Other languages may also be available.
