Legal Aid Society: Juvenile Rights Practice- Staten Island

https://www.legalaidnyc.org/

Who We Are

The Juvenile Rights Practice represents 90 percent of the children who appear before the Family Court in New York City on child protective, termination of parental rights, PINS (person in need of supervision), and juvenile delinquency petitions. The Division was established concurrently with New York State's Family Court in 1962, five years before the U.S. Supreme Court rules in Gault that children have a constitutional right to counsel at government expense, and was one of the first organizations in this country to represent children in a juvenile court. Since then, the Juvenile Right Practice has grown into one of the nations' leading organizations in the field of child advocacy.
