LASNEM's Legal Advice Hotline is a way for people to get their legal questions answered in a short time-frame. LASNEM's launch of the Hotline helps us meet the immediate needs and uncertainties our client communities are facing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This crisis has left many individuals with new and unanticipated civil legal challenges, such as staying safely housed, securing unemployment benefits, and ensuring families are safe against abuse. Given the changes in the operations of the courts, it is challenging for individuals to know what their options are, and how they should move forward. LASNEM staff is here to help the communities navigate these changes.
The Legal Advice Hotline is open Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (noon) and 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. People will still need to be financially eligible for services. They should have their income and household information ready when they call for assistance. Individuals will receive legal advice, and based on their circumstances, they may be eligible for further services and representation.
