Legal services attorneys are available by telephone to assist low-income people. The statewide hotline for is 1-800-498-1804.
Mississippi Center for Legal Services Executive Director Sam H. Buchanan Jr. said, “Any time there is a loss of income or loss of resources, it oftentimes results in an increase in legal needs. It’s a lot more difficult because we can’t reach out to organize and go into the community to let people know about the services. Outreach efforts now rely on social media."
