Local Coalition Offers Civil Legal Resources
The New Mexico Commission on Access to Justice says there has been a surge in people seeking help with situations like evictions and home foreclosures, as well as the loss of job benefits.
“Now more than ever, we need the resources that civil legal services will bring to dealing with the thousands of new cases around the state. People will need help trying to survive this pandemic, and civil legal services should be there to help people in need,” said Supreme Court Justice Shannon Bacon in a press release, who sits on the Commission on Access to Justice.
