We ask that you please provide the following information to assist us to obtain funding to support the Lawyers in the Library program.
Welcome to the Lawyers in the Library program of the Marin County Bar Association and Marin County Law Library. The program provides general legal guidance to residents of Marin County and litigants with cases in the Marin County Superior Court. Our goal is to provide members of the community with legal information so they may make informed decisions about their case. We strongly encourage you to seek the advice of a private attorney through the San Francisco Bar Association Lawyer Referral & Information Service at: (415) 989-1616.
Nothing that is said or done during this program creates an attorney-client relationship. The attorneys present at the Lawyers in the Library program cannot represent you in the matter discussed today.
The attorney will not consult with you outside this program and will not become your attorney. The attorneys may consult with both sides in a dispute. While the attorneys will not disclose your information to third parties, they cannot guarantee privacy in this setting, therefore conversations are not confidential. Conversations may not be recorded.
Priority will be given to persons who have not utilized the clinic more than 2 times in the last 6 months.
Persons whose questions lie outside the scope of the clinic may be referred elsewhere or otherwise redirected. Individuals who have an attorney, are not eligible to be seen at the Lawyers in the Library Clinic.
I hereby acknowledge that I have read and understand the above disclosure statement and I consent to its terms.
I understand and agree that no attorney-client relationship shall exist between myself and any attorney present in connection with my receiving any information or assistance through this program.
I also understand and agree that this program is a public service designed to provide general legal guidance and information and that none of the attorneys present will represent me or become my attorney regarding any specific matter I discuss with them.
I also understand that the Marin County Law Library and the Marin County Bar Association are not responsible for the content or accuracy of any legal information or advice I may receive during the program or for the outcome of my case or matter.
By signing below, I acknowledge that I have read this Disclosure Statement and hereby release the Marin County Bar Association and the Marin County Law Library, and the attorneys volunteering their time at Lawyers in the Library from any claim, liability or damages arising out of or in connection with receiving information or assistance under this program.
