Councilman Michael Nelson is offering free legal service to constituents of all income ranges, thanks to a partnership with the CUNY School of Law Legal Resources Network.
Advice and consultation will be served up in four locations throughout the district. Constituents can get help on civil litigation, landlord and tenant disputes, the drafting of legal documents and more – but actual representation will not be available.
Appointments are expected to last about 45 minutes to an hour.
We wonder if some of his colleagues will stop by to save on campaign funds…
