Finding low cost/ free lawyer. Pre paid lawyer insurance.

Postby Nesisjohn » Sat Aug 27, 2016 10:13 am

Ive been asking a lot of questions recently. I have a couple, does anybody know about how would I go about finding LOW COST / free tenant lawyers ? Also does anybody know about a good prepaid lawyer insurance that primary deals with NY tenant law?

Lawyer insurance? I don't know of any that deals with NYC tenant issues. But even if there were, you would get tenant attorneys.

Low cost? There are many programs, but that depends on your income and your situation. There is Legal Aid, Legal Services, MFY and others. They intake tenants based on income (and are overflowing with applicants), and will likely only take those tenants in real danger of being evicted.
