Senator Andrew J. Lanza Announces
Legal Services Clinic Series for Veterans

Free civil legal services are available for veterans, current service members and military connected family members

I am proud to have secured funding in this year's State budget to support New York Legal Assistance Group's (NYLAG) Veterans Legal Assistance Project. In support of Staten Island's veterans, I will continue hosting NYLAG attorneys at my district office for a series of one-on-one legal clinics. Veterans, current service members and military connected family members are invited to schedule a free appointment with a NYLAG attorney on civil legal issues.
