Community Education & Partnerships

Rumors, false information, and fraud flourish in communities where expert information and legal services are out of reach.

We know that geographical isolation or lack of knowledge about the complex legal system shouldn’t preclude individuals from understanding their rights and options when it comes to obtaining representation. 

That’s why we are on the ground helping our clients in the safe spaces of their communities every day. NYLAG lawyers and experts work with elected officials, community-based organizations, hospitals, schools, libraries, and other partners to deliver our services and knowledge in community spaces people trust.
