BURBANK—The Armenian National Committee of America, Burbank (ANCA-Burbank), in cooperation with experienced local attorneys, is offering a legal clinic to the community on Thursday, March 28 at the Burbank Youth Center located at 75 E. Santa Anita Ave.
The clinic is offered to members of the Armenian-American community who do not know where to turn for legal advice. Free of charge consultations with attorneys will be conducted in both English and Armenian, and will focus on legal topics including immigration, landlord/tenant, employment, and family law issues.
Registration for the clinic will begin at 6:30 p.m. on March 28, 2019, and individuals will be seen by the attorneys from 7 to 9:30 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis.
“We are very excited to offer an opportunity to individuals and families to learn about their legal rights and responsibilities,” said Silva Kechichian, chairwoman of the ANCA-Burbank. “Several local attorneys have graciously volunteered to share their time and knowledge, free of charge, to this event because we all agree that it is important for the Armenian community to be informed and have an opportunity to ask questions and get answers from experts.”
The expert attorneys who have volunteered their time for consultations are: Ashkhen Ashley Gambourian, Raymond Hovsepian, Michael Akopyan and Taline K Boyamian.
Attendees should bring to the clinic documentation pertaining to their legal issues, such as agreements or contracts (signed or proposed), written rules or policies, court orders, papers served or filed with a court, all letters or emails to and from the person or business with whom the attendee has a disagreement, specific paperwork related to the case (rental agreement, lease, child support order, employee handbook, etc.).
