On Saturday, local attorneys will be available to give legal advice at no charge to the public.

The event, one in a series that will continue well into next year at least, will take place at First Presbyterian Church. 

"We wanted to do something to be of service to the community," said Tipton County Bar Association President Amber Shaw. "It's so rewarding to be able to do this because so many people need it. The community really benefits from this resource." 

Though the clinic is operated in conjunction with Memphis Area Legal Services, there are no income or age restrictions, Shaw said. 

"Anyone can come, we don't turn anyone away."

Several area lawyers with different areas of expertise will be on-hand to help answer as many questions as they can, and it's done in a confidential manner. The clinic gives the public the opportunity to meet with someone and get answers to as many legal questions as they want, she said. 

The program has taken place every other month for the last year and a half. Other scheduled dates are Aug. 30, Oct. 25 and Jan. 24, 2015. 

The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
