Low-income Washington County residents may seek free legal advice from a Hagerstown attorney once a week at The Washington County Circuit Court Family Law Clinic.
Tiffany Reiff, a Hagerstown attorney, is at Circuit Court, at 95 W. Washington St., on Thursdays from noon to 4 p.m. to help low-income county residents with family law matters at no cost.
Reiff helps applicants on a first-come, first-served basis in Room 229 of the courthouse annex building.
Advice is not given over the phone, said Patti Witmer, Circuit Court family services coordinator.
Reiff or a substitute attorney might have to turn an applicant away due to a conflict of interest, but would refer such clients to another county Family Law Clinic.
Reiff does not go into court with the people she sees at the clinic, but helps them prepare to go to court.
