Will I have an attorney in court?

Currently, tenants in Albany do not have a right to counsel. This means that tenants do not get a lawyer appointed to them in eviction court. 

Tenants do have the option of seeking an attorney on their own. For free legal assistance, contact the Legal Aid Society at 833-628-0087.
