What do you do if you are disabled, elderly, living on a fixed income, and your landlord locks you out of your apartment? Contact Legal Aid.
St. Johns County Legal Aid “Provides a wealth of justice for those who have neither.” It is a lot of administrative law, poverty law—a lot of law that most people are unaware of—that makes a huge difference in individual’s lives. It can give a new lease on life, whether in a landlord-tenant case or other civil law matter (such as consumer debt, foreclosure, housing, elder law, and family law).
If you are seeking an attorney but think you cannot afford one, contact your local legal aid office. Even if you do not qualify for service, the offices have many helpful pamphlets or they can refer you to attorneys willing to take cases at reduced rates. St. Johns Legal Aid is located at 222 San Marco Avenue in St. Augustine and they are open 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. every business day.
