MLK Day Legal Services


On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Alaska Legal Services invited Juneau residents to seek free legal assistance from local attorneys, volunteering their time.

Despite the frigid temperatures, we were able to provide legal assistance to 65 people.

Reviewing the exit interviews — everyone left satisfied.

ALS would like to thank the following people and businesses who contributed food, time, legal advice and money to make this event a success:
