Civil Legal Advice and Resource Office

Queens CLARO

Queens CLARO is operating on an appointment-only basis. In order to schedule an appointment, proof of vaccination against Covid-19 must be provided.

We are still able to provide remote services. If you are being sued or believe that you may be sued in the future, please feel free to reach out to us at or at (718) 739-4100.

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

Please see note above regarding in-person services. In-person appointments must be scheduled in advance and attendees must provide proof of vaccination. 

Times: Friday 1:30 p.m.

         Location: Queens County Civil Courthouse
            89-17 Sutphin Boulevard
Room 116

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.
