In partnership with Neighborhood Legal Services, the project also provides general civil legal services covering such topic areas as:

  • Health care issues
  • Family law
  • Discrimination
  • Confidentiality
  • Debtor/creditor issues
  • Housing issues
  • Public benefit issues
  • Tax issues
  • Wills

Attorneys in the Positive Individuals and Families Project are also very involved in community outreach and provide training to community members and service providers on the HIV Confidentiality Law, and other issues surrounding HIV status and disclosure.

Potential clients should telephone our office to set up an appointment. Initial review of your case will occur over the telephone. Clients are not seen without an appointment. Please call (716) 847-0662 ext. 324 and leave your name, number and a brief message containing your legal concern.
