This productive clinic with back to back appointments was a big success.  Being a client focused attorney who has been practicing law for 16 years, Meredith enjoys educating the public on topics such as long term care, ethics, estate planning, Medicaid, Veterans Services and guardianship.

“The free legal clinic provided by Mt. Hood Adult Day Center is a wonderful way for people to meet with an attorney who can provide initial direction for their legal matter.  The clinic has been a fantastic opportunity for me to help people, refer them to another attorney or service who can help, or simply give them peace of mind.  The Day Center is a comfortable environment and the staff have been wonderful to work with.” – Meredith Williamson, Attorney with NW Estate Law LLC

Hood Adult Day Center for a free consultation provides folks with a comfortable atmosphere to get to know the attorney, get answers to their questions, and even start getting the help they need, all at no cost. For many people, the legal clinic provides the access to justice they desperately need.” Michael J. Rose, Attorney with Rose Elder Law LLC
