The Houston Bar Association - Legal Line Program

Houston Bar Association’s Legal Line Program Changes During COVID-19 Pandemic 

The Public Can Sign Up Online to Have Licensed Attorneys Call Back with Legal Advice

In response to the community need for legal information and resources during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Houston Bar Association (HBA) debuts new, weekly LegalLine process to replace its bi-monthly call-in program. Members of the public with general legal questions or COVID-19-related inquiries—including unemployment, eviction, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA or Act) and more—can sign up online to have a lawyer call back with advice and additional resources to help resolve their legal issues. LegalLine in its new format will begin on April 8 and will be held every Wednesday from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. through the end of May 2020.

For free legal advice over the phone, please click here or visit hba.org to select an available time slot, then click the “Submit and Sign Up” button to complete the registration process. Sign-ups close the Tuesday before each LegalLine date at 5 p.m. and limited slots are available.
