Empire Justice Center is excited to partner with Pro Bono Net, NYS Office of Victim Services and the Center for Human Services at the University at Albany to announce that a website connecting crime victims with civil legal services is now available statewide outside of New York City. The website New York Crime Victims Legal Helpwas piloted in several counties in the Spring and is now expanding to serve crime victims statewide.
“New York Crime Victims Legal Help was designed to be a single point of entry for crime victims to access civil legal information, resources and assistance. We have made it a priority to provide legal content written in plain language, with an eye on being victim-centered and empowering – giving people useful information and options that can help them. We’re excited to help bring these tools to people all across upstate New York and Long Island.””
