Iowa COVID-19 Legal Advice Hotline

Iowa Legal Aid, The Iowa State Bar Association and the Polk County Bar Association’s Volunteer Lawyers Project have developed a legal advice hotline for coronavirus/COVID-19 – related legal issues. The COVID-19 Legal Advice Hotline number is 1-800-332-0419.

This hotline is a free service available to Iowans who are experiencing legal issues due to the public health crisis. Iowa Legal Aid is hosting the hotline and working closely with The Iowa State Bar Association and the Polk County Bar Association’s Volunteer Lawyers Project to get all Iowans access to the key legal information and advice they need during this crisis.

The Hotline operates between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Iowans experiencing a legal problem related to the coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis, such as eviction, denial of unemployment benefits, employment issues or identity theft, should call the hotline. Callers will leave a message and Iowa Legal Aid staff will call them back. Those who meet Iowa Legal Aid’s eligibility guidelines will be connected with an Iowa Legal Aid attorney; those who are outside of Iowa Legal Aid’s eligibility guidelines will receive a call back from a volunteer attorney through The Iowa State Bar Association or the Polk County Bar Association’s Volunteer Lawyers Project.
