In response to the disproportionate impact of the coronavirus pandemic on low-income communities, the City Bar Justice Center has launched an expansion of its pro bono Legal Hotline to deal specifically with COVID-19-related legal needs of underserved New Yorkers.
A free service, the Legal Hotline is the largest operation of its kind in New York, and is staffed by attorneys who typically handle 1,000 calls per month from low-income individuals seeking assistance with a wide range of civil legal issues. Staff include bilingual attorneys who speak English and Spanish and accept calls in any language through interpreting services. They provide support through legal advice, information, brief services and referrals.
