The Pierce County Law Library and the Pierce County Library System are launching a new self-help webinar series to help litigants access the courts and have their questions answered by licensed attorneys.

The first webinar is scheduled for Nov. 18 at 5 p.m. via Zoom. Tacoma Attorney Beverly Allen will be leading litigants through the process of filing for and obtaining final family law orders through the Pierce County Superior Court.

There is no cost for attendance.

The webinar will be moderated to avoid the disclosure of personally-identifying information. Attendees are advised that their attendance at the seminar does not create an attorney-client relationship. All litigants with family law cases in Pierce County are welcomed and encouraged to attend.

“We are so excited at the potential of this new webinar program to increase access to justice to the courts,” said Branch Services liaison Ame Watterson in a statement. “For nearly two years we have been partnering with local attorneys to offer CLEs and community presentations at our downtown and branch offices, earning the Pierce County Law Library the National Association of Law Libraries’ Excellence in Community Engagement Award and the Pierce County Standing Ovation Award for Community Outreach for 2020. We deeply appreciate our volunteer attorneys who work side by side with us to offer education and support to pro se litigants.”
