Learn How Legal Services of the Hudson Valley Helps

When crisis strikes and people who can’t afford an attorney are faced with legal issues due to a loss of a job, diagnosis of an illness, or unfair denial of benefits, they often do not know where to turn or where to get legal advice. These individuals often get lost in the legal system, thwarted by unfamiliar procedures and confusing processes and paperwork.
The chance of success is greatly increased when you have an attorney by your side.
We are proud of the positive outcomes we can achieve for our clients.

Our Commitment to “Justice for All”

Legal Services of the Hudson Valley’s commitment to race equity has always been a thread woven through our work. The strain our country and the world has been under due to COVID-19 feels relentless. When you add the pain over recent weeks, after the egregious killing of George Floyd and countless other black and brown people, too many in our communities are suffering and experiencing trauma. As a legal services provider, we fight for equal justice for all. LSHV remains steadfast in our anti-racist commitment as we actively work toward equity by providing services to those in need no matter race, religion, sexual orientation or gender. We will continue to work within our communities and with our partners to dismantle the injustices of systemic racism. We hope you will stand with us as we continue this fight.
