Neighborhood Legal Services
NLS provides free legal services to persons with low-income and persons with disabilities. It also provides a wide range of technical assistance and support services. While the majority of its services are provided within the New York counties of Erie, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans and Wyoming, NLS also provides disability-related services for all of Western New York and operates both a Statewide and National Assistive Technology Advocacy Project to assist persons with disabilities and the advocates and agencies that serve them.
