The Disability Law Center (DLC) staff continue to work remotely as the Commonwealth’s COVID-19 restrictions remain in place. We are therefore not taking any walk-in visitors to help slow down the spread of COVID-19. Although we are working remotely, please know that DLC is here for you. Our staff continues to provide client services, respond to calls and emails, and attend meetings via telephone or videoconference.
