On-Site Legal Assistance
Through a collaborative partnership with Legal Assistance of Western New York (LawNY), on-site, free-of-charge legal assistance is now available as a component of our seamless, one-stop Supportive Services for Veterans Families when enrolled in our SSVF program.
LawNY has a 30 year history of offering free legal assistance to eligible clients in Monroe and area counties. This important linkage with the VOC helps veterans access the justice system with legal assistance and advice in areas such as:
- Public Benefits
- Employment Benefits and Rights
- Seniors’ Civil Legal Services and help with outreach and education
Not all legal areas may be addressed or represented by LawNY representatives, but efforts will be made when possible to refer veterans to other forms of legal aid to help with issues outside LawNY’s authorized services.
LawNY services are provided on Tuesdays & Wednesdays, from 9:30am to 5:00pm.*
Veterans or their family members in need of legal assistance may schedule an appointment by calling VOC's help desk at (585) 546-1081. Veterans are requested to bring their DD214 or VA benefits card if available.
*On-site legal assistance is only available to clients who are enrolled in our SSVF program. If you need legal assistance and are not enrolled in our program please call the Legal Assistance of Western New York, Inc. at 585-325-2520.
