The Legal Wellness Institute’s holistic civil legal services promote health and stability for medically fragile New Yorkers. Our goal is to resolve legal problems quickly, so that our clients can focus on their health and their loved ones.
We strive to make our service accessible. For clients unable to travel to our office, we bring the law office to the client. Our attorneys and advocates can meet in clients’ homes, hospitals, and other sites throughout NYC. LWI’s attorneys and advocates are trained in multiple areas of law so that we can resolve interconnected legal problems.
With our help, clients achieve stability in their income, housing, and family relationships, and have a plan for the future.
