National Pro Bono Week is celebrated in October and raises awareness about the increasing need of pro bono services in our country. Each year, legal organizations across the United States collaborate with attorneys who wish to give back to their community. The NCBA Open House clinic provides individuals with the opportunity to receive free advice on any legal issue. Spanish translators will be available. Any language requiring translation can be accommodated upon prior request. Masks are required to attend.

In addition to the Open House clinic, the NCBA offers multiple Mortgage Foreclosure clinics throughout the year to assist individuals who have been affected by mortgage foreclosure.

Attorneys who participate in the Open House clinic are providing one-time free counsel and guidance. However, they do not provide further legal representation. Attendees who would like to hire an attorney are referred to NCBA Lawyer Referral Service.

 Advanced registration is required. To register for a free, one-on-one consultation with an attorney, or to learn more about NCBA’s community service programs, contact or (516) 747-4070 ext. 1231. Please bring all documents to the Open House clinic.
