Landlord Tenant Resource Center

Operations Update June 30, 2020:

Landlord Tenant Legal Assistance Network (LTLAN) and Landlord Tenant Resource Center (LTRC): 202-780-2575.

The D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center is taking necessary precautions to protect our clients, resource center customers, staff, and volunteers from COVID-19. As such, our walk-in, court-based Landlord Tenant Resource Center is closed until at least Tuesday, September 1. We do not take this step lightly and apologize for any hardship this may cause. We are grateful that all evictions are stayed during the public health emergency. You can find updates on the Court’s operating status by visiting https://www.dccourts.gov/coronavirus.

Effective immediately, we have created a telephone system (202-780-2575) that enables us to confer remotely with customers seeking help with residential housing disputes. Unrepresented tenants and unrepresented small landlords may call the Landlord Tenant Legal Assistance Network (LTLAN) to be connected with an attorney at the Pro Bono Center, at another housing legal services provider or at the Landlord Tenant Resource Center (LTRC). Callers will connect with a Program Specialist who will gather the preliminary information necessary to connect the caller with the appropriate free attorney. Thank you for helping to spread the word.

Our Legal Information Help Line (202-626-3499) will continue to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, providing information in Spanish, Amharic and French, in addition to English.

We are continuing to with the D.C. Consortium of Legal Services Providers to post the most up-to-date information with on resources and telephone intake services that are being offered on www.LawHelp.org/DC.
