Attorneys help low-income families and individuals find solutions to criminal and civil legal problems
June 7, 2010 (Newswire.com) - DENVER, Colo - June 7, 2010 - Jansen & Associates announced today that it will host its second free legal clinic. The free legal clinic provides the public with one-on-one brief, initial consultations on any criminal and civil issue such as drunk driving offenses, domestic violence, divorce or child custody and more.
Free Legal Clinic
* Where: Barnum Recreation Center, 360 Hooker Street, Denver, (303) 937-4659
* When: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Sat., June 12, 2010

Jansen & Associates held its first free legal clinic in January 2010 to assist the community at no cost and to provide access to criminal and civil lawyers. Jansen & Associates believes that providing this service to the community is a necessary positive way to give back.
Janie Jones, a mother of three who received advice on her husband's late childcare payments at the free clinic held earlier this year, said, "There are so many scared people out there who want to go forth with cases. If we had free legal clinics like this one, many would be equipped with the knowledge they need to solve problems."
After meeting with an attorney, Jones said her conversation was "an invaluable experience and was instrumental in helping me figure out what to do next. I have a real peace of mind now."
According to Molly Jansen senior partner of Jansen & Associates, "The legal system can be very intimidating and individuals might be hesitant about seeking formal legal assistance. Some people make mistakes and need advice, while some others need answers to help solve issues and/or problems. The legal system can sometimes appear to be daunting, but that is why we want to help."
Bill Fahy, who was getting back on his feet after being homeless, was helped by Jansen at the previous legal clinic. "I didn't know if there was anything on my record and I didn't want to get picked up on the street while getting my life back on track," said Fahy. "I was so relieved when I found that everything was ok."
