Brooklyn, NY – Councilman David G. Greenfield is teaming up yet again with New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG) to get his constituents free legal help. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, May 27th, the NYLAG mobile van will be parked outside the Councilman’s district office (4424 16 Avenue, Boro Park) to offer assistance to residents who seek legal guidance but cannot afford an attorney. Anyone interested in taking advantage of these free services is encouraged to call Councilman Greenfield’s office at (718) 853 2704 to schedule a 45 minute legal assistance appointment. Attorneys will be on hand to provide free confidential legal advice pertaining to issues residents have with government programs such as Medicaid, Medicare, food stamps, housing and other public assistance programs.
“People call my office everyday looking for legal support, but do not have the money for a consultation with an attorney. I am proud to provide my constituents with this invaluable and free service through the New York Legal Assistance Group,” said Councilman Greenfield. “This service was hugely successful last year, servicing many of my residents. I look forward to the same outcome this Wednesday.”
Councilman Greenfield is committed to expanding legal assistance in his district. He hosted the community’s first ever NYLAG mobile legal assistance day with great success in the spring of 2013 and the fall of 2014. Additionally, the Councilman has sponsored free immigration-related legal services in a partnership with the City University of New York Citizenship Now! project and free mortgage-related legal services through the Brooklyn Housing and Family Services. Any resident interested in accessing immigration services and mortgage advice is encouraged to call the Councilman’s district office to schedule an appointment.
