CUDAHY – The Southeast District Bar Association (SEDBA) held its first community legal fair on Saturday, July 30, at Clara Street Park in Cudahy, and provided over 130 free legal consultations to members of the public.
More than 20 attorneys volunteered to provide information in different areas of law including employment, criminal, family, workers compensation, personal injury, estate planning, civil, Mexican laws and consulate issues, immigration, landlord/tenant, and others.
SEBDA’s commitment to provide access to the courts, education, and services to the community continues to be needed as reflected by the high number of consultations given in the four-hour fair.
SEBDA thanks the city of Cudahy, Assembly Member Cristina Garcia and her field representative Ashley Rozatti who participated, Maria Torres Muro, Yasbet Perez, organizers Jack Bunnett, Jesse Arana, Ricardo Perez, and Dennis Saab, and sponsors Ferias Legales, Acme Bail Bonds, Farmers & Merchants Bank, Your DUI Solutions, and Rapido Bail Bonds.
“For over 60 years, SEDBA has and continues to provide access to the courts. One of our goals is to empower the community and education is one way of helping them know their rights,” said board member Dennis Saab.
