Would you like to make an impact on the San Antonio community in a short time frame? The Deed Help Desk Clinic is a great way to help people in need with their deed and county records questions. Volunteer attorneys at SALSA’s Deed Help Desk Clinic will meet with the client in a “help desk” setting and provide legal advice about common issues relating to deeds and title situations.
Here are some questions we anticipate encountering at the clinic:
The clinic is located at the Bexar County Archives, at 126 E. Nueva St., San Antonio, Texas 78204.
Volunteer law students from St. Mary’s University will gather background information and identify the legal issues during clinic intake. The volunteer will then be paired with a law student and a client to discuss the deed and county records issues. The volunteer attorney will meet with the client only during the prescribed clinic hours. Mentors and SALSA staff members will be on stand-by to answer questions that may arise. After providing legal advice to the client about the proper next steps, the volunteer will then complete a closure form which will allow SALSA staff to determine whether any follow-up services are available for the client. If the client’s situation requires a more complex method to resolve the issue(s), SALSA staff will assist with providing the client referral information for additional resources after the volunteer’s assistance has concluded at the Deed Help Desk Clinic.
Once volunteer attorneys register with this clinic, you will be sent a confirmation e-mail including a link to SALSA’s Deed Help Desk Clinic Resource Page, which contains clinic information and some helpful resources.
We look forward to working with you at this clinic!
