Money Watch Q & A: Lawyer in the Library

Posted: Updated:

If you have a legal question, but you do not have the money to hire an attorney, there is a weekly service available to you. The Washoe District Court system hosts the Lawyer in the Library Program, which allows you to sit down for a brief consultation with a lawyer – for free.

If your questions are not answered in the allotted time, they can also refer you to other agencies that offer help at low costs. Some lawyers offer discounted help as well, like our Money Watch Q & A expert, Marilyn York with Attorney Marilyn D. York Inc. Marilyn is a Family Law expert and she specializes in Men's and Father's Rights.

If you have questions for Marilyn, call our Money Watch Q & A line at 858-2222 until 6 p.m. Wednesday night.
