Vermont Legal Aid is coming to Pittsfield to offer a FREE legal clinic on Wednesday, October 5. Legal Aid has partnered with Legal Services Law Line, the Vermont Volunteer Lawyers Project, and the Vermont Bar Association to provide information, advocacy, and representation for individuals and families facing legal issues stemming from the disaster. Anyone with a flood-related legal issue, either from Pittsfield or neighboring towns, is encouraged to attend.

If you are unable to attend, but have any legal concerns related to the flood, please call the Disaster Legal Assistance Hotline at 1-800-889-2047.
