A former public defender, Albuquerque attorney Geoffrey Scovil has well-honed skills as a trial attorney. Now in private practice, he focuses on habeas corpus cases and is committed to protecting constitutional rights. In addition to protecting rights in the courtroom, Geoffrey Scovil supports legal aid charities such as New Mexico Legal Aid, a group that provides pro bono legal services for individuals with limited financial means.
New Mexico Legal Aid offers many services and events to ensure equal access to legal services. On Thursday, August 18, the group will be hosting a free legal advice fair called Law-La-Palooza. Lawyers, including bilingual attorneys, will be available to offer free consultations and advice on various matters, including divorce, immigration, unemployment, and child custody. Services will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, and attendees are encouraged to bring any necessary paperwork with them. The fair will run from 3 to 6 p.m.
