Free Law-Mobile on May 7 in Boro Park, Brooklyn

Councilman David G. Greenfield is partnering with New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG) to provide local residents with free legal help next week.

The NYLAG roving law-mobile will be parked outside Councilman Greenfield’s office at 4424 16th Avenue from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, May 7. Interested residents should contact his office at (718) 853-2704 to schedule their 45-minute appointment as soon as possible.

“My office regularly receives calls from constituents who are in need of legal assistance but are on a limited budget and cannot afford to hire an attorney," Greenfield said.

Attorneys will provide free confidential legal advice pertaining to issues such as Medicaid, Medicare, food stamps, housing and other public assistance programs.

The NYLAG mobile van program was launched last year through a partnership with the New York State Courts Access to Justice Program. NYLAG bills it as “the country’s first-ever legal services office and courtroom on wheels."
