Senator Jack M. Martins is teaming with New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG) to bring a mobile legal help center to the Westbury Memorial Library, located at 455 Jefferson Street, in Westbury on Friday, March 2 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

NYLAG will be providing two services for this event:

- Consumer protection legal counseling in the areas of creditor harassment, identify theft, collection actions and debt management.

- Financial counseling for those facing debt.

NYLAG is a not-for-profit law office founded in 1990 to provide free civil legal services to New Yorkers who would otherwise be unable to afford or receive legal assistance. The mobile legal help center is a way to bring legal services to the community.

“There are residents who have issues with respect to creditor harassment and debt management. NYLAG has agreed to make themselves available to our community to help residents who have an issue. That is one of the main functions of government – to help those who have questions or concerns,” said Senator Martins.

Those wishing to attend the mobile legal help center on March 2 should call Senator Martins’ office at 746-5924 to schedule an appointment.
