As we launch into season 2 of ECQ (Netflix lang), we continue to rely on our internet and screens to stay connected with our friends and family outside our homes.
And our lawyers.
Atty. Chel Diokno, Filipino lawyer, educator, and human rights advocate, announced this morning that he is opening his Facebook page and inbox as a free 24/7 legal helpdesk for any and all questions about the law—family, property, salary, benefits, etc. If you’re seeking legal advice and consultation from a lawyer, here’s your chance!
As chairman of the Free Legal Assistance Group and the founding dean of the De La Salle University College of Law, Atty. Diokno believes that “dapat ang hustisya ay abot-kamay sa lahat ng Pilipino” by giving free assistance and accessible legal advice to Filipinos.
Don’t worry—Atty. Diokno assured us via his announcement video that any and all information sent to his page will be kept confidential.
What you need to do? Go to Atty. Diokno’s Facebook page, send him a message any time, and wait for his team to get back to you!
