Q. How Can I Speak With A Lawyer For Free?

A. In celebration of National Law Day, the Milwaukee Bar Association (MBA) will be providing FREE legal information clinics Saturday, May 4, 2013, from 1:0 0 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. The free legal information clinics will be held at four metro Milwaukee locations: - South Side – Bay View Library 2566 S. Kinnickinnic Ave. Milwaukee, WI - Downtown – Central Library 814 W. Wisconsin Ave. Milwaukee, WI - North Side – Center Street Library 2727 W. Fond du Lac Ave. Milwaukee, WI - West Side – Atkinson Library 1960 West Atkinson Avenue Milwaukee, WI Each location’s “legal team” will be made up of members of the MBA as well as other volunteer lawyers from the Milwaukee area. The attorneys will be available to answer general legal questions, provide insight into the practice of law, and answer general questions on the judicial branch of our local, state and federal government. For situations requiring further assistance, the attorneys will be giving out appropriate resource referrals.


  1. A seriously medically compromised 74 yr old just signed a 1 year lease with no out clause. His doctor has a letter to support need for assisted living. Landlord is holding tenant responsible for all rent for the term of the lease if they cannot rent it. There is little hope of renting it. Tenant is not mentally incompetent 100% of the time but at certain times he is. Without deeming tenant legally "mentally incompetent" What recourse does the tenant have as he cannot afford assisted living along with his apartment rental payments. A power of attorney has been set up for him but that individual was not aware of the lease signing when it occurred.

  2. I can definitely refer you to someone for this. Please contact me at for assistance. Thank you for your patience.
