Welcome to the Student Legal Services home page. Student Legal Services is a non-profit law office that has been serving the Syracuse University students since 1972. We are located within walking distance of campus and serve the Syracuse University students by offering legal advice and representation in certain cases. Please take a few moments to familiarize yourself with our services. If you are a currently registered full-time SU or ESF student and need assistance with a legal matter, we are just a phone call away.

The Student Association and Graduate Student Organization fund our office. The services available under the program include advice and consultation on various legal problems and court appearances in certain situations. This is paid for by funds supplied from your student activity fee.

This program is staffed and supervised by practicing attorneys. Since the attorneys work directly for the students and do not work for Syracuse University, all matters will be kept strictly confidential, and legal conflicts with the University are covered by the program. The staff includes two attorneys, Christopher E. Burke, Esq. and Joseph J. Zavaglia, Esq., a Paralegal, Donna Kreischer, and law clerks.
