SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - In partnership with the Louisiana Bar Association, the Shreve Memorial Library system is hosting a program that makes lawyers accessible to the community.

Throughout the week of Oct. 23, the “Lawyers in Libraries” program is meant to help people who need legal advice but may not be able to afford a consultation. Local attorneys will visit several SML branches to offer free individual “Ask-a-Lawyer” sessions on civil legal issues.

Attorneys will provide information on topics such as bankruptcy, collection matters, custody, divorce, evictions, FEMA/disaster benefits, food stamps, foreclosures, housing, Medicaid, Social Security, SSI/SSDI, successions, taxes and wills/estate planning.
