Mesereau Free Legal Clinic

The Mesereau Free Legal Clinic offers an array of services and programs to include various levels of representation on a case by case basis which can include pro bono, low cost or sliding scale legal representation. It is the goal of Mesereau Free Legal Clinic that each client is treated with the utmost respect and courtesy regardless of income, circumstances, or station in life. To assist in educating the community regarding issues that affect their lives both legally and socially, the Mesereau Free Legal Clinic regularly provides educational seminars and presentations where respected members of the legal community as well as other disciplines, bring hot topics of interest to the community for dissemination and illumination. When clients leave Mesereau Free Legal Clinic, they feel empowered. Instead of being a bit-player in their legal situations, our clients are encouraged to take the lead and become proactive in creating the outcome that they desire.
