The MLHC has set a timeline to help low-income New Yorkers who need legal help and may have trouble getting to a courthouse. The MLHC runs through all five boroughs of New York City, as well as parts of Long Island and Westchester, focusing on places where public transportation is limited. A list of scheduled events can be found in the Mobile Legal Aid Centre calendar. Six days a week, the vehicle visits remote neighborhoods in New York, Long Island, Westchester and Rockland counties and reaches clients who would otherwise not have access to free legal services due to disabilities, travel barriers, child care issues, fears of revealing their immigration status, or because community organizations in their neighborhood cannot legally accommodate local admission. Normally it goes from Sunday to Friday from approx. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. – Times and dates may change depending on the needs of guests and host organizations. The Mobile Legal Help Center (MLHC) was created through a partnership between NYLAG and the New York State Courts Access to Justice Program. It is the first legal aid office and the first rolling courtroom in the country. Lawyers provide advice, advice and representation in complete cases to clients directly in the vehicle. A video link to the courts allows judges to access emergency hearings, including domestic violence and deportation cases.
The centre has four private meeting rooms for lawyers and clients and is equipped with high-speed internet and state-of-the-art technology. The NYS Courts Access to Justice Program has partnered with the New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG), a nonprofit legal services provider, to operate the first mobile legal aid center in New York State. The Mobile Legal Help Center (MLHC) was funded by NYLAG through a grant from the David Berg Initiative and is operated by NYLAG. The mobile center is a 35-foot command center vehicle and is comprised of NYS Court Access to Justice Program volunteer lawyer programs, law school graduates, and NYLAG attorneys. It was established to bring legal aid centre services to the community by providing information aids, training materials and similar recommendations to non-profit agencies and organisations currently provided in existing legal aid centres. Our lawyers bring justice to communities. We offer the following legal services on the van: In addition, MLHC promotes the existence of free civil justice services in underserved communities and helps prevent fraud by providing legal services to individuals who might otherwise fall victim to fake providers.
