Founded in 1990, NYLAG is a leading civil legal services organization combatting economic, racial, and social injustice by advocating for people experiencing poverty or in crisis. Our services include comprehensive, free civil legal services, financial empowerment, impact litigation, policy advocacy, and community partnerships. NYLAG exists because wealth should not determine who has access to justice. We aim to disrupt systemic racism by serving individuals and families whose legal and financial crises are often rooted in racial inequality. NYLAG goes to where the need is, providing services in more than 150 community sites (e.g. courts, hospitals, libraries) and on our Mobile Legal Help Center. During COVID-19, most of our services are virtual to keep our community safe. NYLAG’s staff of 300 impacted the lives of nearly 90,000 people last year.
NYLAG seeks a highly motivated attorney for a temporary position within NYLAG’s Immigrant Protection Unit to provide legal advice and representation to immigrant survivors of domestic and gender-based violence at the Manhattan Family Justice Center. An immigration attorney who is part of NYLAG’s Immigrant Protection Unit, will work on-site at the Manhattan Family Justice Center (FJC).
