Debt Clinic Set To Debut At Queens Civil Court
Residents of Queens County will soon have a new resource to assist them in dealing with consumer debt cases in civil court. The Civil Legal Advice and Resource Office (CLARO) will be opening an office at Queens Civil Court. CLARO, a free walk-in clinic, will offer legal advice for people representing themselves in consumer debt cases. The clinic will be staffed by pro bono volunteer attorneys from Queens County Bar Association's Volunteer Lawyers Project and students from St. John's University School of Law.
Beginning on Friday, January 25, and every Friday thereafter, CLARO will provide information and advice to self-represented litigants between 2 and 4 p.m. The clinic will be located at 89-17 Sutphin Boulevard, room 116.
