If you are in need of legal advice, there are two opportunities coming up. The New York Legal Assistance Group and the New York State Courts’ Access to Justice Program will be bringing their mobile legal help center to Chinatown and the Lower East Side. Staff members are able to deal with housing, immigration and disability benefit issues, among other legal topics. The center will be set up at the following locations:
FRIDAY, AUGUST 22, 10am to 3pm — at 192 East Broadway (Seward Park Library)
MONDAY, AUGUST 25, 10am to 3pm — at 62 Mott Street (CCBA headquarters)
The free service is being made possible thanks to funding from City Council member Margaret Chin. The announcement was made today in conjunction with the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association. You can find out more information and check out other days the service is available by clicking here. State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is also sponsoring portions of the program.
UPDATE: The NYLAG Mobile Legal Help Center that was planned to be stationed at 192 E. Broadway August 22, from 10am-3pm, will now be located at 155 E. Broadway.
