Staff Attorney

This Project advances the state's Justice For All initiative, to provide effective legal assistance to those facing challenges involving the essentials of life (e.g. housing, family matters, access to health care, education, immigration and subsistence income).  The Community Legal Help Project, created by the NYS Permanent Commission on Access to Justice and the Suffolk County Access to Justice Committee, is a unique pilot project that brings legal assistance to Suffolk County neighborhoods, starting with libraries and expanding to social service centers and other sites. The Project will provide legal services professionals to assist eligible residents with legal questions or needs. 

This is an opportunity to be part of team which will design and develop a new and innovative approach to the provision of effective legal assistance.  The attorney will coordinate the efforts of pro bono attorneys, law students and legal services providers to provide basic information and referrals, limited-scope representation, informational services and presentations - in person, remotely, and online.  The attorney will also be expected to help recruit volunteers and develop and implement outreach efforts and publicity for the Project.  The position, while based in Islandia, NY, will involve significant time spent at other geographical locations in the county.
