Our Mission: We leverage the good will, resources, and talents of New York City’s leading law firms to provide pro bono legal assistance to the city’s neediest residents. Through our projects, VOLS’ staff and volunteer attorneys help all kinds of New Yorkers solve difficult legal problems that have significant consequences for them and for their families. We strive to provide pro bono legal assistance when and where it will be most accessible to our clients, in settings familiar to them, instead of requiring people in desperate need to come to us. For questions or information, please contact Leslee Addington. All referrals are confidential.
