“These free events offer Orange County residents the opportunity to request brief advice and counsel about a specific legal issue from an OCBA-member, volunteer lawyer,” said OCBA President Richard Dellinger. “We are proud to have the support from our co-host partners. The specific topics were selected based upon the types of calls recently received through our OCBA Referral and Information Service Center, which is regularly available to Central Florida residents as an excellent FREE legal resource. The OCBA is interested in expanding awareness of these valuable programs and resources throughout the community. ”
