Need Legal Aid Help? Get Started

Legal Aid’s COVID-19 Resources

Legal Aid remains open at this critical time for our clients: our entire team across five counties and four offices quickly transitioned the weekend of March 14 and 15 to work-from-home.

Legal Aid’s online intake is open for clients 24/7 and phone intake is available during select business hours. Although our physical offices are closed and in-person intake suspended, we remain very much open and available to provide critical legal assistance related to basic needs of shelter, safety and economic security. Our attorneys are in touch with our clients and partners via phone, text, video and email.

We are working to leverage technology to further support and enhance our remote work, including by, for example, engaging volunteers to provide legal advice though "virtual" advice clinics. More on those developments as we implement them.

We know this is a time of uncertainty and confusion, so we increased legal education posts on this page, Twitter, and Facebook. As always, knowledge is power, and uncertainty about one’s rights and options contributes to stress and can delay or deny needed access to important supports. We will continue to expand this community education as new issues arise.

In the upcoming weeks, we anticipate an increase in requests for service related to debt/bankruptcy, employment law, unemployment compensation, wage theft, housing stability and domestic relations.
