Regional Offices

Continued Remote Services with Limited Reception Hours Open to the Public

BayLegal’s regional offices have begun a phased reopening for in-person services. Please check each office’s page for current open reception hours. Though our physical offices have only limited public access, our staff continue to work remotely to serve our clients.

Please note the following about our office hours:

  • Covid-19 restrictions: BayLegal is taking all precautions to protect our clients, staff and community and in compliance with Public Health advisories and orders. Only one household will be allowed in the lobby at a time, and everyone entering the building will have to wear masks. All clients entering past reception for appointments will need to answer a Covid-19  screening questionnaire.
  • Client Services by Appointment: If you are a current client, please contact your attorney or schedule an appointment by calling the general office phone number for the regional office you would like to visit. All new clients: please contact our Legal Advice Line at 800-551-5554, our Health Consumer Center at 855-693-7285, or or our Tenant’s Rights Line for Alameda County residents with housing issues at 888-382-3405.
  • Documents: Clients can come to the office hours listed below to pick up and drop off documents as needed for their legal case.
  • Reception services Our reception can give basic referrals and self-help legal materials, and can schedule appointments on a limited basis. There will be no immediate assistance beyond this for people walking in without appointments. Do tell us, however, if you do not have phone or email access and we will work with you on how best to connect you with assistance.

We at BayLegal remain grateful to you for your engagement with and support of our work, particularly during this challenging time.
