PLS is funded to provide civil legal services to incarcerated New Yorkers. As such, PLS works to assist incarcerated individuals with conditions of confinement issues/problems that arise within New York State prisons. We do not practice criminal law and, therefore, cannot provide assistance or advice regarding criminal issues. We encourage you to contact your defense attorney, the Public Defender’s Office or a private criminal defense attorney. You may also contact your local bar association or the New York State Bar Association for a referral to an attorney.
