Operational Changes at HLA in Response to Public Health Situation


Published on March 16, 2020 12:45 pm by HLA in Events, News

Unemployment insurance is temporary income for eligible workers who lose their jobs through no fault of their own. If you have been laid off or terminated from your employment, have had to quit your job or are unable to work due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you may have questions about whether you are eligible for unemployment insurance benefits or how to apply. Please contact our office at (315) 218-0141. We have attorneys ready to advise clients about filing an unemployment insurance claim or to represent you at a hearing if you are denied unemployment insurance benefits.

During the changing public health landscape as a result of COVID-19. 

Court is still open to hear emergency custody matters, orders of protection and emergency child protective proceedings. If you are seeking an order of protection, have an urgent, emergency custody, visitation, or child protective matter and you already have an open file with us, please reach out to your attorney directly.
