TCC to Host Free Legal Clinic for the Community

FORT WORTH, Texas (Aug. 22, 2014) — Tarrant County College will host a free legal-aid clinic on Saturday, Sept. 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the TCC South Campus, Student Center Dining Hall, 5301 Campus Drive.
Classes on preserving personal credit/consumer responsibility, immigration and expunctions/non-disclosures of criminal history will be available. Sessions will be presented by members of the L. Clifford Davis Legal Association (LCDLA, formerly the Tarrant County Black Bar Association). LCDLA attorneys will volunteer for the event along with attorneys from Legal Aid of Northwest Texas (LANWT).
Also volunteering for the event is Fort Worth Alumnae of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., a private, non-profit, Greek organization focused on public service. Members will be on hand to register voters. Additionally, The Texas A&M University School of Law’s student organization, P.L.A.Y. (Presenting Legal Activities to Youth), will be available to teach age-appropriate legal information to K-12 students in innovative ways.
“LCDLA promotes giving back to the community, understanding that it is a privilege to practice law,” said Letitia Patin, attorney and LCDLA officer. LCDLA began its partnership with the Family Empowerment Center at the South Campus after a meeting in early 2014 with TCC Campus and Community Outreach Director Nicole M. Minor. “We look forward to making this legal clinic an annual event,” said Patin. Citing similar events LCDLA has been involved in since 2011, Patin said, “Attendees of the event were pleased with the extensive information they received and the opportunity to direct questions to the attorney presenters.”
Registration for the event is required. To register or for more information, call (817) 515-4FEC.
