Who We Are

Legal Assistance of Western New York, Inc.® (LawNY®) is a non-profit law firm that provides free, civil legal aid to low income residents of 14 counties in Western New York.  LawNY offices may be able to assist with problems relating to housing/homelessness, public benefits, barriers to employment, SSD/SSI, veterans, health insurance, and sexual assault or domestic violence. 

The LawNY - Ithaca office helps income-eligible residents of Tompkins and Tioga Counties. 

LawNY - Ithaca receives funding from the New York State Office for the Aging through the Tompkins County Office for Aging and Tioga Opportunities Department of Aging. Please call your Aging Services Office for referral information.

Circumstances and languages in which interpreters are provided

LawNY will ensure that low-income residents of our communities are not denied access to legal services because they have limited English proficiency (LEP). The same degree of professionalism, respect, and courtesy that is afforded to non-LEP clients will be received by LEP clients regardless of race or citizenship status.

LawNY will provide language services through bilingual staff members, by contracting with outside interpreter services or voluntary community interpreters, or by use of telephone language services.

Emergency Instructions

Calls are taken during office hours only. If calling outside of these hours, please leave a message with your name, phone number, and a brief description of your legal issue and we will get back to you the following business day.

If your landlord has locked you out, shut off your heat or water, taken the doors off your apartment, or moved your belongings out without a court order and the presence of a sheriff or marshall, these actions are illegal and you may call the police. If the police say they can't do anything, take down the name and badge number of the person you speak to and let LawNY know.

If you believe you have an emergency situation which is occurring during non-business hours, additional assistance may be received by dialing "211"
