Places that Help: New York

New York City Legal Assistance

October 28, 2015

Included in this list are organizations that provide free or low-cost legal services to victims of abuse and others who qualify. Even if the organization does not have a lawyer available to represent you in court, you may want to ask if there is a lawyer who you can consult with to get advice. Please note that we list the organizations in the borough where the office is located – however, many offices may likely serve multiple boroughs. We indicate the “counties served” whenever possible. You can click “View All” to look through the complete list of organizations. You can also check out the NYC Hope website to search for legal services by borough or by legal issue.
