 Community Outreach:  New York Southern Bankruptcy Free Legal Clinic

The Southern District of New York Bankruptcy Legal Clinic officially opened its doors to our consumers in September 2019.  The clinic was formed to assist current and potential litigants in chapter 7 and/or chapter 13 cases. The purpose of the clinic is to offer free legal assistance to unrepresented consumers at the pre-filing and post filing stages of bankruptcy. Consumers are given the opportunity to pre-schedule an appointment to meet with an experienced bankruptcy attorney for a free 30-minute consult. The 4 month pilot program began in September 2019.

To date, The Clinic has serviced over 20 consumers and the feedback that we’ve received so far from the public has been extremely positive.
