Alameda County

Phased Return to In-Person Office Hours

As COVID-19 case rates in the Bay Area continue to fall, vaccination rates climb, and statewide pandemic safety measures begin to loosen, BayLegal offices will begin a phased reopening process. the first step in this process will be to begin limited open office hours in the summer of 2021. For our Alameda County regional office, we will begin our limited return to in-person office hours with:

  • Two days a week (days to be determined), 10am-12pm and 1pm-3pm beginning in mid-June, 2021

We will continue to reassess with a close eye on evolving CDC and local public health directives, and as always over the course of the pandemic, will prioritize the safety of our clients, staff, and community above all other concerns.

If you are seeking legal help or advice, we recommend calling our Legal Advice Line at (800) 551-5554. For additional ways to connect to legal help, please consult the “Get Help” dropdown menu at the top of this page.
