PHILADELPHIA, July 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Philadelphia-area residents in need of legal advice on matters involving real estate fraud, including properties stolen through the recording of fraudulent deeds and mortgages taken out against homes without the owner's knowledge, can speak with a volunteer attorney from the Philadelphia Bar Association by calling LegalLine P.M. at 215-238-6333 from 5 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20. The session is sponsored by the Bar Association's Fraudulent Conveyance Task Force.
Callers with other legal issues, including those involving family law, landlord/tenant disputes, wills and employment, and others, are also welcome to call for advice.
LegalLine P.M., which is coordinated by the Philadelphia Bar Association's Young Lawyers Division on the third Wednesday of each month, is a public-service program with the intent of providing quick and accurate legal advice to the Philadelphia community.
Over the past 23 years, the program's volunteer attorneys have helped thousands of area residents with their legal issue either directly or by referring callers to an appropriate source.
As it has for more than 60 years, the Philadelphia Bar Association can refer callers to attorneys in private practice for up to a 30-minute consultation at a reduced fee of $30.00. The fee arrangement after that is negotiated between the client and the attorney. To access this service, simply call 215-238-6333 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
