PAO provides free legal services to San Carlos city hall employees


In celebration of National Women’s Month, the Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) in San Carlos City is offering free legal services to the employees of the city hall.

The free legal services started March 21 and will run until March 22 with the help of PAO lawyers Atty. Alphonse Lonie E. Belarmino and Atty. Mae Lailour Comoda.

Aside from free legal counseling,the lawyers are also extending free document notarization and at the SP Session Hall.

The PAO officials have organized this activity to help the employees with their legal needs without hampering their work. Atty. Comoda said that they are offering their services for free to reach out to the city hall employees, and they hope to provide assistance to those who need it the most.

Around 50 employees have availed of the free notarization service for their Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth (SALN).

Atty. Belarmino expressed that their agency is also open to providing assistance to less fortunate individuals, especially women who experience maltreatment by their husbands.

One of the employees, Devina Ambag of the Office for Human Resource Management, expressed her gratitude for the free service, stating that it helped her save money on notarizing her SALN.

Meanwhile, Budget Officer IV of the City Budget Office, Ma. Elaine Rosos, also appreciated the opportunity and hopes that it becomes an annual activity that benefits local government employees conveniently.
