Who We Are

Empire Justice is the only statewide, multi-issue, multi-strategy non-profit law firm focused on changing the "systems" within which poor and low income families live. With a focus on poverty law, Empire Justice undertakes research and training, acts as an informational clearinghouse, and provides litigation backup to local legal services programs and community based organizations.

As an advocacy organization, we engage in legislative and administrative advocacy on behalf of those impacted by poverty and discrimination.

As a non-profit law firm, we provide legal assistance to those in need and undertake impact litigation in order to protect and defend the rights of disenfranchised New Yorkers.

The Empire Justice vision is to be a statewide leader working to achieve social and economic justice for people in New York State who are poor, disabled or disenfranchised.

Empire Justice protects and strengthens the legal rights of those who are poor, disabled or disenfranchised through: systems change advocacy, training and support to other advocates and organizations, and high quality legal representation in civil matters.
