Did your landlord keep your security deposit without an explanation? Did you pay your auto mechanic but your car is still broken? Did you loan someone money, and they haven’t paid you back? If your damages are under $10,000, Small Claims Court allows you to have your case heard by a judge without the pricey attorney and complicated rules.  But, where do you start? Our Know the Law Series can help!

This Tuesday, November 19th, SDLL is hosting a FREE class on Small Claims Law. The class starts at 10:30 am at the Vista Branch of the San Diego County Library.

Each Know the Law! lecture provides a basic level of knowledge on a legal topic. The sessions are 60-90 minutes long and includes a short Q & A session.  The classes are designed to cover legal topics that you are likely to encounter in your daily life. Volunteer attorneys lead this multiple part series in their area of practice. These attorneys should NOT be considered as personal lawyers. You may be required to sign a waiver before speaking to an attorney that states that no attorney client relationship is being created with this free service. The lawyers are there to provide general guidance.

We are proud to be partnering with the San Diego County Library’s Vista branch and the North County Bar Association to provide the Know the Law series of public lectures. This is the last session in the fall Know the Law series, but keep an eye out for next season’s series!
