To help Iowans navigate uncertainty in the current public health emergency, the Iowa State Bar Association launched a COVID-19 Legal Hotline to offer no-cost legal counsel to Iowans in need.
The ISBA put out the call to Iowa attorneys to offer their time on a pro bono basis and Davis Brown immigration and litigation attorney Daniela Erickson answered the call.
A New York City native and grandchild of Italian immigrants, Daniela is seeing the impact of COVID-19 in reports from her family in those hot spots. She wanted to use her legal skills to ease the burden on Iowans encountering legal difficulties at this time when they have so many other concerns. Daniela is helping callers understand the Governor’s proclamations and Iowa Supreme Court orders on various matters, including landlord-tenant issues.
