Legal Aid Society: Brooklyn Neighborhood Office - Housing Law Practice

Who We Are

The Housing Law Practice at Legal Aid Society offers critical legal services to prevent homelessness among the city’s most vulnerable families and individuals, including representing clients facing eviction in nonpayment and holdover proceedings in housing court.

Through this work, we keep hardworking New Yorkers in affordable housing, get unsafe housing violations corrected, obtain and preserve rent subsidies for clients, fight illegal rent overcharges, and prevent evictions. These efforts prevent homelessness and displacement and save the city and State millions of dollars each year in averted shelter costs alone.
