Access to Legal Help during Coronavirus

Please be assured that the ALS is currently providing legal assistance both for our clients, but with changes to protect our staff, our clients and our communities from the spread of COVID-19.

Things will keep changing so it is important that you stay in touch with your local ALS office!
