Legal Hotline

Call us with your legal issue at 212.626.7383

The Legal Hotline, created in 1997, offers legal information, advice and referrals to low-income New Yorkers who cannot afford a private attorney or do not have access to legal representation. The Hotline assists nearly 1,000 callers a month on a range of civil legal issues, including matrimonial and family law, housing law, domestic violence, bankruptcy, and debt collection and benefits. The service is bilingual, in English and Spanish, and can handle calls in any language through interpreting services.

The Legal Hotline is available to low-income New Yorkers Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and on Friday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at 212.626.7383.

Hotline staff rely on LawHelp.org/NY, a website designed to improve access to legal resources for low-income New Yorkers, offering up-to-date referral information and educational materials for callers.
