In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Court Buddy began hosting monthly virtual Legal Meet-Ups to help people get advice from real lawyers on pressing legal topics. The Meet-Ups are run in a panel format, mediated by Court Buddy’s Chief Legal Officer Jennifer McGlone. She asks the panelists questions submitted by you, our Court Buddy users.
The next legal meet-up will take place on Friday, June 26 at 1pm PT/4 pm ET. Our panel of attorneys will be available to answer questions about rent and eviction problems. You can sign up here and submit your questions or by call (866)653-3017.
Attorney panelist Mazyar Hedayat will be offering his expertise on the subject of landlord-tenant issues.
