  The Mobile Legal Help Center (MLHC) is the country’s first-ever legal services office and courtroom on wheels. On the MLHC, NYLAG staff provide counseling, advice, and direct representation on a variety of legal issues—from public benefits, family and matrimonial law, employment law, immigration and more—without leaving the vehicle. A video link with the courts enables access to judges for emergency hearings, including domestic violence and eviction cases.

NYLAG staff will be conducting legal clinics aboard the MLHC on the dates listed below. We invite participation from volunteer attorneys, law graduates and law students to help us provide legal services. Volunteers conduct intake interviews with MLHC visitors, and provide information and brief advice on a variety of legal issues. All volunteers are supervised by a NYLAG staff attorney who assists with evaluation of the legal issues raised during intake, and provides any guidance and support volunteers may need. Volunteers will have access to a recording of a webinar training on the MLHC intake process and will be sent training materials and intake guides.
