Greenhouse Ministries Legal Clinic: Legal Questions Answered

In Rutherford County, Greenhouse Ministries offers a free legal clinic each Thursday night from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. Many lawyers from the Rutherford County show up unpaid and give assistance to members of the community.

At Legal Clinic, you can ask a lawyer free questions from all kinds of topics. It does not mean that you are going to come away with a free lawyer. It means that you will be able to ask a lawyer free and the lawyer will be able to address your questions, help you sort out your real legal issue, and give you some direction.

We compare our time at legal clinic to working triage at the hospital. It is not a place where we have hours to sit and spend on each case. Instead, it is a place where you can have legal questions answered and, if needed, the volunteer lawyer can put you in touch with someone who can provide further help.

We volunteer at Legal Clinic because we believe in contributing to our community and helping get legal questions answered. We can say that, out of fifteen years of participating in this program, the people that show up are truly in need.

If you find yourself saying “I need a lawyer,” but aren’t sure about the issues in your case, we believe that you should be able to talk with a lawyer and ask questions without being obligated to pay money. Hiring a lawyer has the potential to be life altering. Ask yourself: don’t you want someone with experience in these kinds of situations?
