Who We Are

The New York State Court system has established the Volunteer Attorney Program as a free service designed to ensure that people have access to competent legal information and advice to guide them as they represent themselves. Under the supervision of court staff, volunteer attorneys spend full days or parts of days in a courthouse, and are available to provide legal advice and assistance to self-represented litigants in consumer debt and housing cases in the Civil Court's Resource Center.  Volunteer lawyers meet with unrepresented litigants on a walk-in basis.  This is an advice-only project.  Volunteer lawyers do not provide direct representation in court or file papers on the litigant's behalf.

How to Get Help

People are seen on a walk-in basis with no appointment needed, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
