News: C&J attorney Heather Thuet featured by Good4Utah about free and low-cost legal resources in Utah
// Mar 20, 2018
Heather Thuet appeared on Good4Utah today to talk about the Utah State Bar's own "Tuesday Night Bar" - a program that helps low income individuals get initial access to legal help. Many people are resistant to speak with an attorney either because of the cost, and the Utah State Bar's program can help people get past that initial reluctance and learn more about their rights. Families who earn up to $75,000 a year may also qualify for Utah's Modest Means program which provides reduced rates for legal services.
Attorneys have a professional obligation to help provide affordable access to legal representation. As a member of the board of Bar Commissioners, Heather is seeking to promote these programs and let people know that they don't have to navigate the legal system alone.
