Many seriously ill individuals find themselves facing eviction as a consequence of financial instability resulting from their illness and often will require the assistance of a lawyer. This free webinar, which is the second in the VSB/CancerLINC pro bono webinar series and is co-sponsored by Central Virginia Legal Aid Society, will cover common legal issues encountered by volunteer lawyers handling housing law cases. It will focus on landlord-tenant issues, including an overview of the Virginia Landlord-Tenant Act, addressing landlord abuses , protecting against public utilities shut-offs, and spotting issues when defending against eviction . Marty Wegbreit, Director of Litigation with the Central Virginia Legal Aid Society will be the instructor for this webinar.
