Legal Services of the Hudson Valley

The mission of Legal Services of the Hudson Valley is to provide free, high quality counsel in civil matters for individuals and families who cannot afford to pay an attorney where basic human needs are at stake. 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: Save children from neglect; Protect women from domestic violence; Defend seniors against abuse; Serve veterans on the home front; Support the rights of the disabled; 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 48 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. We now have eight locations from which to provide services to the seven counties, including offices in White Plains, Yonkers, Mount Vernon, Peekskill, Spring Valley,Kingston, Newburgh and Poughkeepsie.
