Do you have some legal concerns? Understandably, a lot of people are hesitant to consult with a lawyer nowadays for various reasons. Legal fees can be expensive, and a lot of Pinoys are tightening up their belts already. On the other hand, it can be difficult to read and thoroughly understand pages of legal documents by yourself in order to get the information you need.
Fortunately, human rights defender, teacher, and former senatorial candidate Atty. Chel Diokno just announced that he is launching a FREE legal helpdesk. Yes, whether your issue is about a property, family disputes, or police detention, you can seek legal counsel without worrying about the expenses. Atty. Diokno made the announcement on his Twitter and Facebook pages.
Diokno serves as chairman of the Free Legal Assistance Group (FLAG) and the founding dean of the De La Salle University College of Law. Despite his loss in the recent national elections, Diokno has remained steadfast in his commitment to be of service to Filipinos.
He helped the general public understand the controversial anti-terror bill law, and is part of the group of seven lawyers who will present, on the behalf of the 37 petitioners, oral arguments against the said law. To add to this, he has used his platform to educate more people on important issues such as voting literacy and social responsibility.
To be of service to his countrymen has been a tradition in his family. As per ABS-CBN News, Chel’s great grandfather Ananias was a revolutionary general, his grandfather Ramon was a senator, and his dad Jose was a lawmaker who became the first head of the Commission on Human Rights following the restoration of democracy in 1986.
Given his track record and his compassion for fellow Pinoys, he might just help you regarding any legal concerns you may have. In order to get legal advice from Diokno and his team, you simply need to message him on Facebook.
