BACKGROUND

Headquartered in White Plains with offices throughout the Hudson Valley, Legal Services of the Hudson Valley has helped hundreds of thousands of people since its inception 50 years ago.

Legal Services of the Hudson Valley is a not-for-profit law firm, originally incorporated in 1967 as Westchester Legal Services. In 1995, we added Putnam and Dutchess counties, and in 2004, Rockland, Orange, Ulster and Sullivan counties. Our name has evolved to reflect the geographic expansion of our service area.
