William Kleindienst Volunteers for the ABA & SC Bar’s COVID-19 Pro Bono Hotline

May 4, 2020

William Kleindienst has joined the collaborated effort of the South Carolina Bar and the American Bar Association in helping those in the community confronted with civil legal problems due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Qualifying low-income individuals and families across the state are now able to call a toll-free legal assistance hotline to be matched with a volunteer South Carolina lawyer for free legal help.

In addition, Will has been donating his time to the temporarily expanded South Carolina Free Legal Answers online legal service by helping members of the public handle the unexpected legal matters they face resulting from the pandemic. The online clinic is confidential, answering questions related to landlord/tenant concerns, family law, foreclosure, unemployment and benefits, debt, and bankruptcy. The temporary expansion of this service allows those in the state that fall below the federal poverty level to qualify for SC Free Legal Answers.
