Understand consumer debt and bankruptcy at the Klamath County Library

Thursday, April 18th 6pm
Downtown Klamath County Library


The downtown Klamath County Library is hosting "Lay Person Legal," a series of law seminars for average folks navigating the legal system. Our latest presentation covers consumer debt and bankruptcy on Thursday, April 18th at 6 pm.

Attendees will get a better understanding of how to declare bankruptcy to get out from under debt and avoid collection agencies, as well as other issues they may encounter when dealing with large amounts of debt.

This seminar series is a partnership between the downtown Klamath County Library, the Loyd De Lap Law Library, the Klamath County Bar Association and Legal Aid Services of Oregon, and will cover various legal topics of interest to the average person. Attendees will get a better appreciation of how the legal system works, particularly if they are attempting to navigate the courts without a lawyer.

Presenter Karen Oakes is an attorney specializing in consumer protection law, exclusively handling cases dealing with debt collection, borrower protection, and credit. She is the president of the Bankruptcy Law Network.

Please note that while all our Lay Person Legal presenters are legal professionals, they cannot give legal advice on any specific case.

No registration is required. For more information, please call 541-882-8894.
