The Mexican American Bar Association will host a legal fair with El Concilio on June 1 at the El Concilio offices, 301 South C. Street in Oxnard. We are looking for attorneys and other professionals to donate their time from 10 am to 2 pm (lunch to be provided) to meet with pre-registered individuals from the community who are looking for guidance on legal and financial issues. El Concilio will take care of all of the set up and planning. We just need you to show up and share your knowledge. If you are interested in participating, please contact me at 805-764-6370 or

We will not be providing extended legal services or representing individuals in any particular case. Everyone is welcome to offer their services to individuals through subsequent personal meetings, but there is no expectation of any continued representation. We will have disclaimers and waivers available on-site.

This is a great opportunity for MABA to get involved with the local community and assist many individuals who have basic questions and who can benefit from general legal guidance. Thank you for considering this opportunity and please sign up!
