New York County Lawyers Association - Legal Counseling Project

Who We Are

The Legal Counseling Project provides counseling to clients four times a month on an appointment-only basis in the areas of family, employment, and landlord/tenant law. No representation of any kind is undertaken. Many clients are prepared during these sessions for pro se representation; referrals are made to a variety of sources if the volunteer attorney determines that legal representation is necessary or desirable. Sessions are limited to 30 minutes.
