The Legal Office can provide advice concerning personal, non-business, civil legal problems, including preparation of some legal documents, taxes, and assistance in drafting letters for your signature. We are limited to assisting only those eligible clients with noncommercial, noncriminal matters.
It is imperative that you ask the legal office to review and explain questionable legal documents before you sign them. If you are unable to resolve a problem yourself, it is best to get advice as soon as possible since delay rarely makes things better and the law may limit your remedy if you do not act quickly.
