Nassau residents caught in the events of Super Storm Sandy can have their questions answered by attorneys at a free clinic at the Nassau County Bar Association at the NCBA headquarters, 15th and West Streets, Mineola, NY funded in part through the NYS Attorney General Homeownership Protection Program. Attorneys have volunteered to provide one-on-one guidance, advice and direction to any Nassau County homeowner who is concerned about issues which have resulted from the Superstorm such as flood insurance, contractor disputes and any other related issues.
Attorneys have volunteered to review these issues with Nassau homeowners, help them sort things out, and give advice or refer them to agencies and programs, right in the same room, that may be able to help. This is not legal representation. The attorneys will help the homeowner find out if indeed, they need a credit counselor, attorney, tax consultant or other agency and get them in touch with available resources.
In addition to meeting one-on-one with a volunteer attorney, bankruptcy attorneys and representatives from Nassau/Suffolk Law Services and New York Legal Assistance (NYLAG) — which provides free legal services for those who meet certain income guidelines — are on hand to provide assistance.
Reservations are required by calling the Bar Association at 516-747-4070. Please bring any documents. Attorneys fluent in other languages are available upon request when reserving.
All clinics are 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM and are held at the Nassau County Bar Association in Mineola twice a month. Call to make an appointment for the next scheduled clinic.
Please call the NCBA for the scheduled dates for Free Legal Consultation Clinics at (516) 747-4070.
