The pace of calls to the State Bar of Georgia’s free, confidential lawyer assistance hotline during the first six months of 2020 matched those of the previous year, despite a pandemic that has shut down courthouses and schools, led to salary cuts, forced lawyers to work from home and upended countless other aspects of life.
