Fountain Valley, Ca (February 26, 2011)

The Vietnamese American Culture & Education Foundation (VACEF), a non-profit organization, in conjunction with the Little Saigon Chamber of Commerce and the U.S. Army, where Attorney Hoang Huy Tu serves on the Federal U.S. Army Advisory Council, presented Free Law Day at The Tu Firm.

This event had been a long time in the making and its necessity was realized by Hoang Huy Tu who, during the course of his practice spanning over a decade as chief legal counsel of The Tu Firm, found that many members of this community were unable to afford quality legal services while others were simply unaware or misinformed of the various legal options that were available to them. These conditions are only compounded by the language and cultural barrier that exists between our young immigrant community and the legal system.

With Free Law Day, Attorney Hoang Tu aims to provide these members of the public with a means to obtain free quality legal advice so that they will be able to better deal with the various legal issues that may be facing them – whether it is criminal, immigration, bankruptcy, personal injury, family law, etc.

Fountain Valley Mayor Steve Nagel and Councilman Michael Vo, Huntington Beach City Mayor Joe Carchio presented Attorney Hoang Tu their City's Appreciation Award. 

The Tu Firm provided over 100 free consultations - on that day with the help of four attorneys and paralegals, with over 60 combined years of legal experience. The Tu Firm provided the facilities and the staffing for this event, as well as food and refreshments at no charge, VACEF was on hand to accept any support and contributions that any attendee may be willing to donate.
