The scheduled location for these Clinics is Senator Persaud’s District Office located at 1222 East 96th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11236.
The Mobile Office hours will be 10:00 a.m. to 2:15 p.m., on an appointment only basis. Appointments can be made by calling the district office at (718) 649 7653 or by visiting Senator Persaud’s website.
Bringing free legal services directly to community members is vital. This helps constituents to overcome their circumstances and improve their livelihood. The Office of Senator Persaud observed a very high demand for legal services in the district, especially among the adult population. The response to prior Mobile Legal Help Clinics exceeded the Office’s expectation. Therefore Senator Roxanne Persaud pushed to expand the services.
This initiative helps residents remain in their homes; make proper financial decisions and stay out of the prison systems. It is very important not only to acknowledge the needs of people but also to be able to meet their demands, thus improving the quality of life in the district.
NYLAG staff will provide free legal assistance on issues relating to:
Housing (Tenants Only)
Custody and Visitation
“Our constituents deserve access to legal services to assist them in navigating certain challenges they face. Accessing legal help can be cost-prohibitive; therefore, I am committed to collaborating with agencies such as NYLAG, which provide relevant services at no cost to the constituent. I encourage the constituents of SD19 to take continue to make full use of this free resource.” Senator Persaud said.
