Alameda County

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.

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.
