Civil Legal Advice and Resource Office - CLARO

The Civil Legal Advice and Resource Office (CLARO) is a limited, legal advice project for unrepresented debtor-defendants with consumer debt cases in New York City Civil Court. CLARO operates under the auspices of the New York State Unified Court System’s Access to Justice Program. CLARO involves partnerships among the county Civil Courts, New York City bar associations, and local academic institutions, including several law schools. CLARO now operates in all five boroughs -- Bronx County Civil Court, New York County Civil Court (Manhattan), Kings County Civil Court (Brooklyn), Queens County Civil Court, Richmond County Civil Court (Staten Island) and in Westchester and Erie Counties. Volunteer lawyers work side by side with volunteer law students. Consumer law experts help train volunteers and are available for onsite consultation during weekly clinics, which take place in the courthouses. The Feerick Center helps administer the Manhattan CLARO Project and the Bronx CLARO and provides support to the Staten Island CLARO Steering Committee.
