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 2014, our ten-person staff enabled 918 lawyers from 50 law firms to volunteer 17,908 hours, a value of $6 million in donated legal fees, to serve 2,978 low-income New Yorkers through VOLS' projects. Our Unemployment Insurance Advocacy Project alone won $470,000 in benefits for people who lost their jobs through no fault of their own.
