Legal Clinic Calendar

Important Notice Concerning Clinic Availability and Public Health:

In accord with evolving COVID-19 public health guidance, Bay Area Legal Aid has resumed some “in-person” legal clinics, while others will continue as remote events either by phone or online. Our attorneys and support staff will work to help you outside of clinic if you have a time sensitive legal issue. Our Legal Advice Line will remain open with additional staffing and resources to help us serve more clients during this period. Please see individual clinic listings for additional information on emergency service and resources related to specific clinics.
Masks will be required for all participants in in-person clinics, along with symptom screening before the appointment begins.

Free Consultation with an Insurance Lawyer
Jul 28 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

What is the event? The non-profit United Policyholders, in partnership with Bay Area Legal Aid, California Rural Legal Assistance, Inc., and the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association, will present basic information on laws and consumer protections related to insurance policies, coverage and claim settlements, immediately followed by one-on-one consultations with volunteer lawyers with expertise in insurance legal matters.

Who should attend? Homeowners and renters whose insured property was damaged or destroyed in the recent wildfires. Some of the issues you can discuss with an attorney may include but are not limited to:

  • What can I do if my insurer is offering less money than I believe I’m entitled to?;
  • What are my rights if I’m underinsured?;
  • What can I do if I don’t have enough money to rebuild?;
  • My adjuster is uncooperative or hard to communicate with;
  • I want to buy a replacement home instead of rebuilding;
  • I’m concerned about smoke damage and my health; and
  • I’m considering hiring a public adjuster or attorney.
