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

VOLS' 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.  By recruiting, training, and supporting volunteer lawyers, we are able to multiply our impact significantly.  

In 2016, our ten-person staff enabled 1,000 volunteer lawyers from 50 firms to provide 18,000 hours of pro bono legal assistance benefitting 3,000 low-income New Yorkers on critical issues including immigration, elder law, family law, housing, government benefits, and community economic development.
