New York Public Interest Research Group
Small Claims Court Action Center
Small Claims Court Action Centers do not provide legal advice or courtroom representation, but can help resolve your consumer problems and boost your chances of success in the small claims courts and with collecting a judgment. The counseling centers are staffed by trained college student volunteers and interns, and directed and supervised by attorneys and other professional staff. The counseling includes dispute resolution tips and information on how to navigate New York�s small claims system from assistance to before a case is filed, to court preparation, to judgment collection.
