CHARLOTTE - People came out to get free legal advice in northeast Charlotte Saturday.
Channel 9 anchor Eric Philips served as a moderator at the event at Hidden Valley Elementary School.
Lawyers and judges answered questions about civil law, employment, criminal and family cases.
One judge told Channel 9 it is a great way for members of the community to seek advice from experts.
“I think it’s a critical service,” said District Court Judge Ty Hands. “Hidden Valley, one of the things we wanted to do is make sure we have not forgotten about them.”
Legal experts say one of the biggest challenges for low-income members of the community is getting access to legal services.
