PLS provides high quality, effective legal representation and assistance to indigent prisoners on issues associated with their conditions of confinement. We work hard to protect the civil and human rights of those who are held in our state prison system. We advocate for humane prisons and for a more humane criminal justice system.
PLS has four regional offices located in Albany, Buffalo, Plattsburgh and Ithaca. We have ten attorneys and two paralegals on staff. We provide civil legal services to over 56,000 individuals incarcerated in New York's state prisons.
