We will help you get the civil legal services you need.

We provide civil legal services and supports for the most vulnerable people in our community, including the working poor, women, immigrants and the LGBTQ community.  We have over 300 pro bono attorneys and staff ready to assist you, and we provide services to 11 counties across New York state.


The Legal Project, located in Albany, New York, is a private, independent, not-for-profit organization founded by the Capital District Women's Bar Association in 1995.   We are a unique legal services firm in that we help the working poor with their civil legal needs - those who "on paper" make too much money to qualify for programs for the indigent, but who do not earn enough to pay the fees of private attorneys.


We provide innovative, cost-effective services that are collaborative and that focus on unmet needs in our communities.  We are the primary provider of domestic violence civil legal services in the Capital District.  We have over 250 pro bono attorneys who participate in our programs, 35 staff including 17 staff attorneys and we serve over 3,600 clients each year.


At The Legal Project, we envision a world where all people have access to justice and equal protections under the law.  Click here to read more about our mission, vision, values and history...
