How to reach Staff and Legal Consultants

Staff and Legal Consultants can be reached by emailing or by calling 215/763-1144 or 800/903-0111, ext. 3. Both numbers will get you to the same place (NCDBW’s main line). Staff do not have individual extensions. 

Staff works hard to answer the phones as much as possible and to return calls quickly but, given there are only 3 full-time staff, it sometimes takes a while to respond. If you do not hear back within 5 days, you may want to email or call again.
