Legal clinics draw hundreds on Anoka Law Day
For a number of years, the Anoka County Courthouse has hosted a Law Day event each spring, complete with courthouse tours and an information fair, but this year was different. Offered for the first time in conjunction with the event, free legal clinics drew hundreds to the courthouse April 29.
People were lining up before the event started at 9 a.m., and many stayed throughout the day to drop by various legal clinics; see Anoka County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Brian Collier and his K-9 partner Mesa, who detects explosives, at work in one of the courtrooms; and more.
Legal clinics pertaining to family law; driver’s license reinstatement; adult and juvenile expungements; outstanding warrant resolution; conservators, power of attorney and guardianships; immigration; and eviction expungements were offered throughout the day.
Judge Bethany Fountain Lindberg heard that one individual flew in from New York to seek an expungement.
