KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's student government, the Western Student Association, provides free legal advice for all WMU students on a walk-in basis.

Kalamazoo attorney Jeff Dufon is available from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursdays in the Student Organization Center conference room in the Bernhard Center. All consultations are confidential.

"This is a great, free resource for students," says Erin Kaplan, WSA president. "Students may seek advice on any legal issue from possession charges to landlord conflicts."

The service provides free legal advice, not free legal representation.

Dufon is with the law firm of Redmond, Streed and Yokum in downtown Kalamazoo. During his 19 years of legal experience, he has specialized in criminal law, juvenile law and bankruptcy. He served in the 1990's as Kalamazoo County's assistant prosecuting attorney.
