Civil Family Case Assistance at Supreme Court Law LibraryPosted on Nov 26, 2019 in Featured News, News & Reports, Press Releases
Attorneys specializing in family law are now volunteering at the Hawaii Supreme Court Law Library to provide limited legal advice to self-represented litigants with their civil cases in the Family Court. This “Lawyer in the Law Library” program is a satellite of the Kapolei Access to Justice Room, previously available only at the Kapolei Courthouse.
Opening day was November 23, and attorney Ann Isobe volunteered for all four appointments, plus a walk-in. (Typically, this service is by appointment only.)
One of the participants noted in her evaluation: “Law library staff very helpful. Downtown location very convenient. Attorney was very knowledgeable, efficient, and helpful.”
Beginning January 2020, appointments at the Supreme Court Law Library will be available two Fridays a month. Meanwhile, the Kapolei Courthouse will continue to have appointments available the first and third Thursday of the month.
Appointments are for 30 minutes between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at both locations. Call 954-8290 for an appointment.
