ST. PETERSBURG — The Pinellas County Urban League (PCUL) is partnering with the St. Petersburg Bar Association to present the “Ask a Lawyer” workshop series to be held on the third Thursday of every month from 6-7 p.m. at the Urban League headquarters located at 333 31st St. N., St. Petersburg.

If you have questions about child support, divorce, Social Security, employer issues, bankruptcy, an unfair arrest and more, you are encouraged to attend these informative seminars.

Focusing on a different topic each month, every session will be led by trusted, local St. Petersburg Bar attorneys who will review the topics in simple, straightforward terms, and each session will include a question and answer period.

The series will be launched Thurs., Feb. 19 at 6 p.m. with Probate & Estate Planning (Wills) as the topic. Future sessions will include Family Law (Divorce, Child Support/ Custody) in March; Employment Law/ Workers’ Compensation in April; Criminal Law (DUI’s, Unfair Arrest) in May; Probate/Elder Law in June; and Bankruptcy/Credit Issues in July.

“These workshops are a great opportunity for participants to get answers to their legal questions in a free, casual setting,” said PCUL President & CEO Watson Haynes.

Light refreshments will be served at 5:30 p.m. Space is limited, and participants should contact the PCUL at 727-327-3568, or email Wendy Lane at WLane@pcul.org to reserve their seat.
