Lawyers in the Library

Lawyers in the Library

Lawyers in the Library is a free program that provides legal information and referrals from volunteer attorneys. Get your questions answered at your library!

Consultations occur on alternate months at the Sonoma County Law Library and the Sonoma County Library (see below for dates, locations, and hours).

Local attorneys will offer free legal information and referral. These lawyer consultations will last up to 20 minutes.

Attorneys offer legal information only. They do not provide specific legal advice and should not be considered personal lawyers. Participants sign a waiver stating the consultation does not establish an attorney-client relationship.

Registration is in person only and begins at 4:30 pm (30 minutes before the program starts). Space is limited.

Language translation services or interpreters are not available for this program; participants are welcome to bring their own interpreter. Participants may also bring support persons, family members, or other affiliated persons to meet with the attorney together.

For deaf and hard-of-hearing participants, the Sonoma County Bar Association will arrange for ASL interpretation with at least two days’ notice. Please contact or (707) 542-1190 ext. 100 for assistance.

Lawyers in the Library is offered in partnership with the Sonoma County Public Library, the Sonoma County Law Library, and the Sonoma County Bar Association.
