Charleston Legal Access, along with law firms Nelson Mullins and Jackson Lewis, launched a South Carolina Virtual Legal Clinic, offering pro bono legal consultations for Lowcountry small business owners and nonprofits to help them navigate the COVID-19 economic crisis and ensuing relief programs. The clinic is part of a nationwide program developed by the Lawyers for Good Government Foundation, a non-profit network of more than 125,000 legal advocates with lawyers in all 50 states.
Qualifying small businesses and nonprofits of 25 or fewer employees will be offered free 45-minute phone or virtual consultations with pro bono attorneys who can answer legal questions and help determine the best path forward for their companies. Consultations will include helping Lowcountry small business owners or nonprofits understand the legislative language in the CARES Act and Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), and answer any questions related to employment, contracts, commercial leases, insurance and insolvency issues.
Under phase three of stimulus relief legislation passed by Congress, an additional $320 billion has been provided to make new loans under the PPP, which provides forgivable loans to small business that keep employees on the payroll for eight weeks. The measure also includes $60 billion in loans and grants under a separate Economic Injury Disaster Loan program.
