Goodcall.nyc: Who to Call if You Get Arrested in New York and Have No Money for a Lawyer

About Good Call

Good Call is a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering communities of color and creating systemic transformation by providing immediate access to legal support using technology and community organizing. Their mission is to ensure that individuals facing arrest have the resources and representation necessary to protect their rights and prevent lifelong consequences for wrongful charges.

Immediate Legal Help

If you or a loved one are arrested, Good Call puts you in touch with a free lawyer who will guide you through the arrest process. These experienced lawyers are committed to providing immediate legal assistance, ensuring that you understand your rights and the steps involved in your case.

Alerting Loved Ones

Good Call understands the importance of having a support system during challenging times. When you make a call to 1-833-3-GOODCALL, not only will you be connected to a lawyer, but the system will also send arrest alerts to your pre-saved emergency contacts. This feature ensures that your loved ones are informed and can be there for you when you need them the most.

Transforming the Arrest Process

By advocating for early legal intervention as a standard process, Good Call aims to transform the arrest system in New York City and beyond. They believe that by providing immediate access to legal representation, individuals have a fair chance to protect themselves and prevent unjust outcomes. Through their work, Good Call strives to create a more just and equitable society.
