ELSA Attorneys Organize, Participate in FREE Sun Prairie Legal Clinic

Free Legal Clinic Starts Tuesday

If you live in the Sun Prairie area and have legal questions, there is now another local resource available.  The Sunshine Supper Legal Clinic will open its doors tonight, September 16, 2014, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Sunshine Supper (1632 West Main Street, Sun Prairie), to answer your legal questions free of charge.

ELSA Attorneys will be on hand to answer your questions regarding various fields of law, including employment law, family law, immigration law, and landlord-tenant issues.  Individuals whose questions are not fully resolved will be referred to outside resources, including the State Bar’s Lawyer Referral & Information Service, Community Justice, Inc., Legal Action of Wisconsin or the State Public Defender’s Office.

The clinic is the result of months of hard work by ELSA attorney and shareholder Joshua J. Kindkeppel, as detailed in this article from The Star, as well as ELSA attorneys Kathleen Curran and Kevin Henry, and other local practitioners.

Attorney Kindkeppel practices in the areas of business, real estate, employment, and civil litigation.  He was elected and served as president of the Dane County Bar Association in 2012-13, and collaborated with long-time Madison attorney Joseph Melli to create the Joseph A. Melli Mentorship Program to assist young Dane County attorneys. Kindkeppel is also active in the Sun Prairie Rotary Club, and serves on the planning committee for the Sun Prairie Kindness Retreats.

Attorney Curran practices in the areas of family law, estate planning, civil litigation, employment law, and personal injury.

If you cannot make it to tonight’s clinic, it will return on October 21, 2014, and on the third Tuesday of each following month.
