Get affordable legal help from our network of qualified lawyers.


Traffic Tickets

A lawyer can help you challenge an NYPD traffic ticket for a moving violation. Each case only costs $99, well below what the average traffic lawyer will charge. This one-time fee also covers multiple tickets by the same officer in the same incident.

Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) Issues

An experienced TLC representative can help you understand how to fight your TLC ticket, your rights as a driver, strategize your points on your TLC license, review any document sent by the TLC, and generally anything you need to know.

Housing Issues

A pro bono lawyer can help you understand your rights as a tenant, assist you with an eviction notice, understand any legal documents from your landlord (including leases), and help you fill out any paperwork.

9/11 Compensation Fund

If you were working downtown below Houston Street and around Staten Island’s Freshkills area between 9/11/01 and 7/31/02, you can be entitled to compensation for health conditions and can get much-needed health assistance. We have partnered with a law firm to help enroll eligible drivers.


A lawyer can help you receive free immigration-related legal issues such as:

  • Citizenship Application Assistance (N-400)
  • Green Card Application for Refugees and Asylees (I-485)
  • Renewal of Green Card (I-90)
  • DACA Renewal
  • Removal of Conditions (I-751)
  • Travel Document for Refugees and Asylees
