New York Lawyers for the Public Interest
“NYLPI” was established to advance equality and civil rights, with a focus on health justice, disability rights and environmental justice, through the power of community lawyering and partnerships with the private bar. Through community lawyering, NYLPI puts its legal, policy and community organizing expertise at the service of New York City communities and individuals. NYLPI’s partnership with the private bar strengthens its advocacy and connects community groups and non-profits with critical legal assistance. Founded in 1976 as a small-scale staff working to link low income clients and organizations with attorneys willing to volunteer pro bono legal services, NYLPI has grown into an unparalleled resource for low income, community-driven legal representation. Partner Charlie Scibetta sits on the Board of Directors for NYLPI. For more information about the organization, please contact Charlie or click here.
