Lawyers in the Library

The Lawyers in the Library program is going virtual.  Lawyers will be available to meet virtually via videoconferencing at the library.  There will no longer be an in-person lawyer available for in-person consultations.  

Lawyers in the Library is held on the 3rd Floor in Room 392 at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Library.

The program starts at 6:00 PM and runs until 8:00 PM. The library is located on the corner of Fourth Street and East San Fernando Street, in downtown San José. The address is 150 East San Fernando Street, San José, CA 95112.

How to Make an Appointment

To make an appointment for a free, 20-minute legal consultation, you must call 408-808-2382 on Monday mornings starting at 10:00 AM for an appointment that same evening. Once the appointments slots are full, no further calls can be taken.

Your phone reservation guarantees you an appointment with a lawyer, but only if you are on time. If you are not on time, we cannot hold your appointment and will have to move on to the next client.


The library is closed on all major holidays. There will be no appointments on the following remaining holidays in 2017:

  • Mon, October 9 - Columbus Day
  • Mon, December 25 - Christmas Day

There will be no appointments during the following time period: December 18, 2017- January 22, 2018.

The last appointment for 2017 is December 11, 2017.
