According to the Louisiana State Bar Association, the 24th Judicial District Court in Gretna is opening a domestic law help desk on Thursday, October 2. It will be staffed by volunteer attorneys and lawyers from the Louisiana Civil Justice Center. The help desk is located on the second floor of the 24th JDC courthouse building, at 200 Derbigny Street in Gretna.
Our parish courts often encounter unrepresented litigants in family law cases. Many people need help, but can’t afford attorneys to help them. Hats off to the 24th JDC, the Louisiana Civil Justice Center and the Louisiana State Bar Association for providing a place for people in need of help to get advice and assistance.
There has been a help desk in Orleans Parish for some time now, and it’s encouraging to see our State Bar reaching out to help people in need of family law advice in other parishes as well. Let’s hope the trend continues!
