BayLegal offices will close beginning 3/16/2020
In keeping with current public health guidances related to COVID-19, as of Monday, March 16th we are closing BayLegal offices to the public. We will continue to provide services remotely. Our offices will be closed at least through the end of March. We will continue to reassess with a close eye on evolving CDC and local public health directives, and are preparing for the possibility of longer closures.
We are committed to continuing to serve our clients to the greatest extent possible – those who we all know will be most affected by this newest crisis. This of course includes partnering with our collborating organizations, and keeping our broad network of supporters informed and engaged.
We are working on increasing our Legal Advice Line hotline capacity to assist more clients over the phone, both giving advice and providing legal assistance with pleadings, letters and representation as possible. We will continue to update everyone and are continually updating this web page. We are also focused on our continued collaboration with partner organizations and our supporters on broader advocacy efforts to protect our client communities, including moratoriums on evictions, additional legal protections and benefits, and working with courts and government agencies on continuances and procedures to ensure continued access, etc.
We at BayLegal remain grateful to you for your engagement with and support of our work, particularly during this challenging time.
