We are thrilled to serve the Women's Business Center (WBC) for our third consecutive academic year providing group coaching to established business owners. The only SBA funded women's center in Western New York, the WBC hosts advisory group sessions in its beautiful program space at Canisius College (Science Hall). For more information about Advisory Groups and/or other programs, go the WBC website at www.thewomensbusinesscenter.com.
The Western New York Law Center (WNYLC) provides legal representation to low-income people of the region. The Center also helps legal service offices statewide to better use technology in a cost effective manner.
Tenant Rights & Security Deposits were the focal point of WNY Law Center series during the month of April 2018. Lessons in the series prepared tenants with knowledge of their rights and how small claims court works.
“Small claims court is meant to be kind of the people's court, where you can go in and file,” said Staff Attorney, Pam Lanich. “It's not meant to be a difficult process.” Still, Lanich says there are many who don’t know where to begin the process of taking their landlord to court.
The WNYLC sees many cases in which tenant’s security deposits are unreturned with no explanation. Tenants are encouraged to be vigilant in reclaiming their security deposit. "It can be intimidating because some of the landlords might be represented by an attorney or professional attorney and a regular person might feel they can't handle it on their own," said Lanich
In addition to landlords being out of the city – WNYLC has seen increased barriers for non-english speakers; therefore Spanish and Burmese translators were on hand to assist guests at their class.
