Details

PLEASE NOTE: this clinic will proceed but there will be no in-person consultations.
Due to current health concerns, all consultations will be done remotely by telephone.

AABANY's Pro Bono & Community Service Committee will conduct its 1st Legal Advice & Referral Pro Bono Clinic in Queens, NY on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM. Unlike our clinics in Manhattan and Brooklyn, this clinic will see clients by appointment only, not walk-in.

Since the inauguration of AABANY's monthly pro bono clinic in 2015, thousands of low-income community members have received thoughtful advice and appropriate legal referrals from AABANY members.  

The Pro Bono Committee is seeking volunteer attorneys who practice in the following areas of law, and language interpreters, for the Pro Bono Clinic in Queens for the corresponding Clinic dates: 

  • March 17, 2020 -  HOUSING LAW (including coops)
  • April 15, 2020 - IMMIGRATION LAW
  • May 20, 2020 - ELDER LAW & BENEFITS
  • June 17, 2020 - FAMILY/MATRIMONIAL/EDUCATION LAW

Attorney volunteers will only be rendering legal information and advice and will not take on any legal representation. All volunteers who will be participating in client consultations must be AABANY members for professional liability coverage purposes. Volunteers may sign up here to become an AABANY member or can do so at the Pro Bono Clinic. Interpreter volunteers should be fluent in English and at least one of the following languages: Cantonese Chinese, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, Korean or other Asian languages or dialects. 

Volunteers - attorneys and interpreters - should bring open ears, patience, and compassion. All volunteers should arrive by 6:00 PM and will be given an orientation before the start of the clinic. Attorneys and interpreters interested in volunteering for the Pro Bono Clinic, and those who need certifications of pro bono hours for bar admission purposes, should contact Asako.Aiba@aabany.org. 

AABANY's Queens Pro Bono Clinic is conducted in collaboration with NYS Committeewoman Sandra Ung.
