LGBTQ Brooklyn Legal Assistance Project

Brooklyn Bridge-for webAre you an LGBTQ Brooklynite? Do you need legal guidance? Volunteer lawyers are here to help.

 

Who runs the legal clinic?

The LeGaL Foundation, in partnership with the Brooklyn Community Pride Center and the Brooklyn Law School OUTLaws, is pleased to provide a pro bono legal clinic devoted to serving the LGBTQ community of Brooklyn (you don’t have to live in Brooklyn to qualify for assistance).

 

What kind of help is offered?

The clinic is staffed by volunteer attorneys who are available to provide general guidance and legal referrals but not legal representation. Each visitor can expect to have a 15 minute – 20 minute consultation with our volunteer attorneys. Depending on your circumstances, you may also qualify to receive free assistance with long-term planning documents such as: wills; living wills; and health care proxies.

 

When and where is the clinic held?

The legal clinic is held every other Wednesday from 6:00-8:00PM (see dates below).

The clinic is now located at the new Brooklyn Community Pride Center, located at 4 MetroTech / on Willoughby St. near the intersection of Gold (b/w Metro Drugs & the Subway sandwich shop).

For more information, contact [email protected] or call (347) 770-3494.

 

Do I need an appointment?

No appointment is necessary but you should arrive prior to 6:45pm to ensure that you can be seen.
