Virginia Legal Aid Society wants you to know that it’s remaining open
during the COVID-19 outbreak, using law to resolve problems affecting
the basics of life for low-income families and individuals.
Lawline, its telephone intake and advice system, remains open during its
normal business hours: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m.
to 3:30 p.m., at 866-534-5243 (866-LEGL-AID). VLAS urges everyone to
call rather than visit, if possible, to help keep everyone safe.
VLAS’s five offices in Lynchburg, Danville, Martinsville, Farmville and
Suffolk will remain open by appointment and during limited open business
hours. Visitors should contact their local office prior to visiting in
order to confirm hours of public access. The Lynchburg office is open to
the public from 9 a.m.-noon weekdays; the other offices are open from
9-11 a.m. These hours are subject to change.
VLAS’s mission is to resolve the serious legal problems of low-income
people, promote economic and family stability, reduce poverty through
effective legal assistance, and to champion equal justice.
