ST. PETERSBURG — The Pinellas County Urban League, in partnership with the St. Petersburg Bar Association, is inviting the community to its next “Ask a Lawyer” workshop to be tonight Thurs., May 21 at 6 p.m. at the Urban League headquarters, 333 31st St. N., St. Petersburg.

The informal, relaxed atmosphere of these workshops allows participants to ask questions of the attorneys on a variety of topics. Past sessions have covered probate and estate planning, child support/custody and divorce, Social Security, employer issues and more.

The best thing about these valuable workshops is that they are provided to the community free of charge. Every session is led by trusted, local St. Petersburg Bar Attorneys who review the topics in simple, straightforward terms, taking time to give in depth responses during the question and answer period.

The month’s session will cover Criminal Law (DUI’s, Unfair Arrest). Upcoming sessions will include Probate/Elder Law in June; and Bankruptcy/Credit Issues in July.

“We know that many in our community are acquainted with this month’s topic and we would love to have a packed room on Thursday evening. This is a great opportunity for people to get free legal advice from St. Petersburg Bar Attorneys who are experts on the topic, eager to help however they can,” said PCUL President & CEO, Watson Haynes.

The Urban League is committed to “Empowering Communities and Changing Lives,” and these free workshops are one of many ways we give back to our community. If you or someone you know is dealing with an unfair arrest or a DUI charge, Haynes encourages you to join us for this informative session.

Light refreshments will be served at 5:30 p.m. Space is limited, and participants should contact the Pinellas County Urban League at (727) 327-3568, or email Jade Spradley at jspradley@pcul.org to reserve their seat.
