The mission of Legal Services of the Hudson Valley is to provide high quality counsel in civil matters for poor and low-income individuals and families and other vulnerable persons who do not have access to the legal representation needed to meet their basic needs. Pursuit of this mission includes a commitment to principles and practices of diversity and inclusion to ensure justice for all persons regardless of their economic or social conditions.
Legal Services of the Hudson Valley is the only provider of comprehensive civil legal services to all seven counties of the Hudson Valley, including: Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, Rockland, Orange, Ulster and Sullivan.
We are the recipient of Legal Services Corporation funding for the region and provide a full array of legal services to low-income individuals and families. The work we do each day provides justice to thousands of our neighbors who have nowhere else to turn.
Our funding empowers us to:
- – Protect individuals from domestic violence
- – Defend seniors against abuse
- – Serve veterans on the home front
- – Support the rights of the disabled
- – Ensure that LGBTQ individuals are free from discrimination
- – Promote children’s well-being
- – Keep families in their homes
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.
