Saturday October 25 Theresa Lassiter and her organization Success Unlimited Women and Youth Business Center presented the eleventh annual Lawfest Workshop.
The Lawfest Workshop, conceived by Ms. Lassiter, is an event designed specifically to get people who need legal services or advice directly in touch with local attorneys.
The event was packed when I got there about noon and there were numerous rooms at the Midtown St. Petersburg College Campus full of attorneys and people with real questions.
There were a lot of helpful people on hand to make sure visitors found the right attorney for their questions.
While I was there, former Mayor Bill Foster was answering questions about estate planning and current City Council member Charlie Gerdes was offering some legal advice.
I have been to a number of these events and it is always a moving experience to see attorneys from the community helping people who might not otherwise seek out legal advice.
All the services are free.
The Lawfest Workshop is a very personal one on one event and is best told in pictures.
