Nassau County homeowners facing the risk of foreclosure can get free legal advice on Monday.

The Nassau County Bar Association will hold its monthly foreclosure clinic from 3 to 6 p.m. at its headquarters at 15th and West streets in Mineola. Volunteer attorneys will offer one-on-one guidance about foreclosure, loan modification and bankruptcy. Federally certified housing counselors will also be on hand.

Residents who meet income guidelines can meet with Nassau/Suffolk Law Services, which provides reduced-fee legal services.

Attorneys who are fluent in Spanish will be hand, and those fluent in other languages can be made available upon request.

Attendees should bring their mortgage documents to the clinic. Required reservations can be made by calling (516) 747-4070.
