August 15, 2019

Louisville – For the average person, trying to navigate the legal system can be difficult when you feel your rights have been violated. Fortunately, there is one local organization that can offer help and advice when it comes to legal questions.

Councilwoman Madonna Flood (D-24) announces the next South Central Regional Forum will feature the Legal Aid Society of Louisville on Wednesday, August 21st.

“Most of us may never need the services of an attorney in our lifetime but there are those times when you may have questions about a legal issue you are facing,” says Flood. “The Legal Aid Society offers a service to most folks who really have nowhere to turn when it comes to our court system and civil rights.”

The Legal Aid Society deals with many civil legal processes and general information regarding civil legal issues that may be impacting an individual’s home, income, personal safety or family. Representatives will talk about how you can access the justice system to resolve systemic issues and discuss the basic services Legal Aid provides. 

Neva Scott, Executive Director of the Legal Aid Society and John Young, Managing Attorney of Intake will be on hand to talk about what the group offers to the public in the way of legal services and advice.     

General questions will be taken at the end of the presentation.  Should individuals need to ask specific legal questions, Legal Aid Society will be on hand to answer those questions and provide individuals with an intake form for those who may need further legal help.

As always, Code Enforcement and LMPD’s Seventh Division officers will be on hand for any questions you may have.   

The South Central Regional Forums are sponsored by Councilwoman Flood and Council Members James Peden (R-23), Mark Fox (D-13) and Barbara Shanklin (D-2).

The next forum is set for the South Central Regional Library at 7400 Jefferson Boulevard from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.
