Free Legal Seminars

The Law Office of Charles Jones is committed to educating Georgians about their legal rights through informative and educational seminars, offered completely free of charge! Make a plan to attend one of our "Your Legal Rights..." sessions, and check back often for additional seminars!

TBA (Fall 2009)
Your Legal Rights... When Stopped for DUI
Learn what to do when pulled over on suspicion of DUI. Topics include whether you should do the field tests or the breathalyzer, and the consequences of each. Also covered are your right to request your own chemical test, and your rights to challenge the evidence against you in Court.

TBA (Spring 2010)
Your Legal Rights... As Residential Tenants
Learn your rights with respect to repairs, rent, security deposits, and evictions. Topics include the clauses that a lease legally may not contain, how to deal with a stubborn landlord when it comes to repairs, and how to use a roommate agreement to minimize disagreements.

A Legal Seminar for New Parents
With parenthood of course comes significant responsibilities. Every new parent should know how to legally plan for their family's future. Topics include wills, trusts, and guardianships.

We are very interested in giving back to our community through legal education. If your organization is interested in hosting Attorney Charles Jones for a seminar or lecture on a legal topic, please do not hesitate to contact us!
