Brooklyn CLARO 

We recommend you come to CLARO as soon as you become aware that there is a case against you, if possible before filing your Answer with the court. If you have already filed your Answer don't worry, just come to CLARO as soon as you can - the earlier the better. And if you only realize there's a case against you once a default judgment has been entered and your wages or bank account are being garnished, its not too late - CLARO can still help.

How to find us

Times: Thursday 2:30 - 4:30 p.m.
                and 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Location: Kings County Civil Courthouse
    141 Livingston Street

Room 1312 (2:30pm-4:30pm); Room 403 (6:00pm-8:00pm)

Due to the high volume of visitors, CLARO cannot guarantee that everyone will be seen and we recommend you sign in as early as possible.
