Our two staff attorneys provide direct representation and give legal advice and guidance over the phone and in person, specializing in civil legal matters including family and landlord tenant law. We also mentor volunteers and are able to provide services in other civil matters to eligible clients.
Additionally, our Pro Se Divorce Program guides parties seeking uncontested divorces through the process, from the initial filing through Judgment of Divorce.
In conjunction with other community partners, the ACBA created the Albany County Family Court Help Center, staffed by attorney volunteers. Our Albany County Family Court Help Desk is staffed by law students and non-attorney volunteers. Both the Help Center and Help Desk provide support to litigants in the Albany County Family Court.
In Albany City Court, the ACBA co-sponsors the Attorney for the Day Program representing tenants. Additionally, we work closely with rehabilitation and reentry programs in the community to assist people with addressing credit reports, RAP sheets, obtaining Certificates of Relief from Disabilities and other civil legal matters that may interfere with recovery.
We can always use attorney volunteers!
