We all interact with the law every day, yet few people really understand how the legal system works. Misconceptions run rampant, often fueled by misinformation, distortions in the media, or a simple lack of exposure. And, of course, people sometimes find themselves in situations in which they need to make decisions, but lack the training and expertise to even understand the options available to them.
Part of our mission at Shelton Legal Services is to educate the public on the law and legal issues. After all, the more you know, the better equipped you are to make decisions. Below are links to a variety of articles about different areas of law. If you have a specific question, you can also submit it at “Ask a Lawyer”. Please bear in mind that these articles are for information purposes only and are not intended (and should not be considered) legal advice. If you need legal assistance, please contact a lawyer.
