Cobb Justice Attorneys Provide Free Consumer Advice

To help members of the public understand how the legal system works when it comes to consumer law issues, the Cobb Justice Foundation has collaborated with local attorneys in the community to provide a free monthly Consumer Information Clinic. On the last Tuesday of each month (with the exception on November and December, those dates to be announced), Cobb Justice Foundation volunteer attorneys are available to help members of the public understand how to navigate the court system when they are being sued by a creditor or being garnished, as well as understanding how the Fair Debt Collection Act, Fair Business Practice Act and the Truth in Lending Act apply to them.   Attorneys provide a free informational seminar regarding these issues, among other consumer law issues, and then allow for a question and answer period, wherein the consumer can meet with an attorney on a one-on-one basis with specific questions about their particular legal matter.  The attorneys are available on a first-come, first-served basis from 6:00 P.M. until 8:00 PM. in Courtroom I of the Superior Court South Building (Building “D").

The first Consumer Clinic will take place on Tuesday, August 27th, from 6:00 P.M. until 8:00 PM.  For more information about the Clinic, call Legal Aid of Cobb County at (770) 528-2565.

This clinic is open to everyone, regardless of income level.
