Caption: THE LEE COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION, with Florida Rural Legal Services and Lee County Legal Aid Society, conducted its free annual "Law in the Mall" event April 27 inside the Edison Mall in Ft. Myers. Project Chair Gus Simmons said volunteer attorneys met with individuals to answer legal questions on topics including bankruptcy, civil, elder law, family law, landlord and tenant, criminal, real estate/condominium, and wills, probate, and estate planning. "We were happy to be able to serve our community in need who otherwise would not be able to afford these legal consultations," said Ty Roland of Aloia, Roland and Lubell. The volunteers also presented four free one-hour seminars on legal topics. Florida Rural Legal Services and Lee County Legal Aid Society provided the public with information about pro bono services for those in need of more extensive free legal assistance.
