In the interest of helping to limit the impact and spread of COVID-19, the Ithaca office is currently closed to walk-in clients. However, our programs and services are OPEN.

We are also meeting with current clients and potential clients in person by APPOINTMENT ONLY, where we adhere to strict safety guidelines.

We know that the uncertainty at this time will add additional strain to our client community who risk loss of income, inaccessible resources and health insecurity.  We continue to do our work in the interest of and the wellbeing of those most in need. Our thoughts are with you as we all navigate this challenging time.




Domestic Violence

Elder Law

Landlord/Tenant and other housing



Public Benefits

Unemployment Insurance Benefits


We are able to refer a limited number of other civil matters to private attorneys on our pro bono panel.  Such representation is free of charge, but we can only make the referrals when an appropriate lawyer is available.  For this reason, we may maintain a very short waiting list and we may have to ask potential pro bono clients to call us back at a later date. (We get many more requests for divorce, for example, than we have lawyers to whom we can refer those requests).


Our Services Change - Call Our Office

The only way to be sure about whether we can help you is to call our office. Because our funding is limited, we are always seeking new grants to fund our services to low-income people.  Sometimes, we get new grants that allow us to offer new services. Sometimes, grants end that once paid for us to do special kinds of legal work.
