Who We Serve

OnVLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit legal aid organization that provides free legal information, assistance, and representation in civil legal matters to low-income people. Our services are provided by volunteer attorneys with the help of law students and are supervised by a small staff. Our mission is to provide equal access to justice to those in need.

In 2016, the Volunteer Lawyers Project of Onondaga County closed 3,185 cases, benefiting over 8,000 community members in matters affecting the essentials of life such as housing, family and income maintenance.
