Virtual Lawyers in the Library

Image of Law Books

The Lawyers in the Library program is a free information and referral program staffed by volunteer lawyers and hosted by libraries throughout Alameda County. If legal help is required, people are referred to  other agencies. 

The program is co-sponsored by Alameda County Bar Association, Legal Access Alameda.   

While our physical locations are closed, we are able to offer a limited number of phone appointments, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and Sunday afternoons. Appointments usually run for about 10-15 minutes. Due to limited availability, we can only make one appointment per month per person or family. 

To request an appointment, email eAnswers@oaklandlibrary.org or call 510-238-3134.  Library staff will get back to you within three days.
