Legal Advice Line
For help with a legal problem involving Housing, Public Benefits, or Consumer Law, please call our Legal Advice Line for assistance.
Mondays and Thursdays: 9:30 AM – 3 PM
Tuesdays and Wednesdays: 9:30 AM – 1 PM
Please note: Due to the high volume of calls we receive, we recommend calling as close to 9:30 AM as possible. If the Legal Advice Line reaches full capacity, callers may be instructed to call back later or the next day.
We also encourage callers who are placed on hold to utilize our automated call back system. You will receive a call back from one of our attorneys before the end of the business day. Be sure to keep your phone close by and the line open as we can only make one call back attempt.
