We are happy to announce that New York launched its new LH3 site, www.LawHelpNY.org, on March 21st. Congrats to Leah Margulies, Wilneida Negron, Anne O’Grady and the rest of the LawHelpNY team! LawHelpNY highlights their extensive self-help form collection through a “Get Court Forms” button in a widget on their homepage, as well as a button leading to a list of available hotlines users can call to receive additional information and services. LawHelpNY.org maintains a dynamic blogging presence, which can be found here, and in an RSS Feed on their homepage.
Just after their launch, on April 5th LawHelpNY was awarded the 2013 Angelo T. Cometa Award, given by the Committee on Lawyer Referral Service of the New York State Bar Association to those who “demonstrate an extraordinary commitment toward advancing the goals of the State Bar’s Lawyer Referral and Information Service.” More information on this years award can be found here.
Congrats again to LawHelpNY!
