Greater Bakersfield Legal Assistance (GBLA) is excited to announce that for the first time ever is partnering with One Justice to bring a team of 12 law student volunteers from Los Angeles to deliver much needed services for individuals facing issues with medical debt, health insurance, workers compensation, and estate planning.
Together with the South Kern Medical Legal Partnership, GBLA and the “Justice Bus” will be at the Lamont Library on April 1, 2015 from 1:00-5:00 pm providing free legal advice and services in the areas of medical debt, health insurance and workers compensation. Two CECs from Clinica Sierra Vista will be available for health insurance enrollment assistance. We are prioritizing South Kern residents, so feel free to spread the word to any of your clients in Arvin, Lamont, Weedpatch, and Greenfield who are in need of such services.
Further, the Justice Bus will be at the GBLA office in Bakersfield on April 2, 2015 from 1:00-5:00 pm providing services and advice related to estate planning.
GBLA along with other pro bono legal partners will be assisting with both clinics. Please see the attached flyers for further details and information on scheduling an appointment. If you have questions, call Katrina Rayco at (661) 321-3992.
