Our Office Hours and Locations

Centro Legal de la Raza is taking every recommended precaution to protect our clients, staff, and the general public from exposure to the coronavirus.

Accordingly, our physical offices will be closed to the public, and we have cancelled our in-person legal clinics for the rest of March 2020 and through, at least, April 7. We encourage clients to reach out via telephone to request legal consults and assistance during this time, at (510) 437-1554.

Please leave a message if no one answers and we will return your call. Centro will continue to promptly return calls by phone from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.  If you have a scheduled appointment, please call the number you were provided. If you were not provided a number, clients should expect a call from Centro Legal.

We will provide updates as we continue to explore the best ways to provide legal services to our community, while also being attentive to public health guidance. Our priority is your safety and health so we will take all measures to protect you and to reach out to vulnerable community members. Thank you for your cooperation and support.

We are open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 12 pm and Monday through Thursday from 1 pm to 5 pm.
