Enabling New York City's Leading Law Firms to Serve Low-Income New Yorkers

Our mission is to leverage the good will, resources, and talents of New York City's leading law firms to provide pro bono legal assistance to low-income New Yorkers. 

In 2015, our ten-person staff enabled 760 lawyers from 50 law firms to volunteer 17,000 hours, a value of over $6 million in donated legal fees, to serve 3,000 low-income New Yorkers through VOLS' projects. Our Unemployment Insurance Advocacy Project alone won $270,000 in benefits for people who lost their jobs through no fault of their own.
