Lawyers across the state will spend time in local libraries on Law Week to provide resources and assistance to people in need, talk about statewide legal issues and meet with library patrons. Lawyers in Libraries: Law Week 2019 is a free event that is open to the public. It will take place in libraries statewide during the first week in May.

The goal of the day is to provide Maine citizens with access to legal advice and information so that they are better prepared to face legal issues that arise. Legal access is critical to a community’s well-being; an entire community suffers when neighbors and friends go through foreclosure, are not safe in their homes, or cannot afford heat or food.

“Access to justice is about fairness,” explains Hon. Andrew M. Mead, Associate Justice of the Maine Supreme Judicial Court, “so that, regardless of your income, you have access to our society’s system of justice. When we say the Pledge of Allegiance, we close with the promise of ‘justice for all.’ If individuals lack access to legal assistance, it profoundly affects their lives, the lives of their children, and the stability of their communities.

Jesse Bifulco is a local Camden Attorney with over twenty years of experience in Estate Planning. As a brother of seven siblings, father of three, and second generation Estate Planning Lawyer, Jesse is passionate about protecting families from legal issues that devastate finances and preserving their property through proper estate planning. By offering Free workshops to the public and local organizations weekly, Jesse helps empower communities all over Waldo and Knox County with the information they need to start planning.
