Family Legal Care’s clients don’t have the money to hire attorneys, and often make "too much" to qualify for a free attorney. They fall in the cracks, but still deserve an equal chance at access to justice like every other family in New York…Family Legal Care gives them hope…I am so grateful to be a small part of this organization’s mission of helping all families access justice in New York family courts.

Jennifer Borzooyeh, Legal Counsel, Bloomberg

I’ve had firsthand experience witnessing the devastation lower income families face in court when they cannot afford lawyers. Family Legal Care helps these individuals educate themselves so they can self-represent in court, better understand their rights, and get the best possible outcomes for their families.
