Disabled Suffolk County residents need your help!
Nassau Suffolk Law Services needs additional volunteers for its two limited scope pro bono projects to serve our disabled neighbors: SSI/SSD Application Project and the 17-A Guardianship Project, to meet the high client demand for these services. All attorneys can participate, even those with no prior experience. The commitment is short-term and limited to just the application/petition preparation. The training for these projects (free CLE video recordings, viewable in your office or home), the written materials, and client-meeting space, if needed, are all provided by NSLS.
The Community Legal Help Project in Suffolk County
The Community Legal Help Project is an Access to Justice initiative that partners with several other legal service providers to provide free legal consultations to the Suffolk community at public libraries.
• Volunteer to provide half hour legal consultations to individuals by appointment. Although many areas of expertise are helpful, most scheduled appointments involve family law, consumer debt, foreclosure, and immigration
• Volunteer attorneys needed to assist in phone triage, referral, and scheduling of callers with legal needs. Phone work is done in our Islandia office.
Anyone interested in learning more about this project is urged to contact the Community Legal Help Project Coordinator, Vivian Storm at (631) 822-3272 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Register Here!
All of our offices are now open to the public and accepting walk-ins.
