How to reach Staff and Legal Consultants

Staff and Legal Consultants can be reached by emailing or by calling 1-800-903-0111 ext. 3. 

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.
