Quezon Rep. Mike Tan felt thankful after successfully holding his first legal mission in Lopez, Quezon on December 3 and 4.
Tan teamed up with the Integrated Bar of the Philippines to provide legal services.
He said his intention is to bring free legal assistance closer to the people.
“Alam natin na ilan sa ating mga kababayan ay may mga suliraning kinakaharap sa usaping legal kung kaya naman isa sa prayoridad natin ay ilapit sa ating mga kababayan sa bawat munisipalidad hanggang barangay ang programang ito,” he said on Facebook.
He also said that by providing free legal consultation, he was able to educate them on how to resolve problems using the proper processes provided for in the law.
He vowed to hold more legal missions in the future.
“Asahan ninyong magkakaroon pa tayo ng ganitong aktibidad sa iba pang mga bayan sa ating distrito,” he said.
