Hiscock & Barclay Hosting Family Law Clinic
Syracuse, New York – September 26, 2014 – Hiscock & Barclay, LLP began hosting a family law clinic in the Supreme Court building in downtown Syracuse on September 24. The firm will host the clinic for 52 weeks.
An attorney from the firm’s Syracuse office will be at the clinic every Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. to assist clients, who meet the income eligibility requirements, with the preparation of various family court petitions including petitions for custody, child support and paternity.
The Volunteer Lawyers Project of Onondaga County, Inc. identified the most pressing civil legal needs of low income individuals and families in the community and developed this clinic in October 2013. Since the inception of the clinic they have served over 350 individuals in family court, many of whom would not otherwise have received assistance. The mission of the clinic is to ensure access to the courts and equal justice for all.
