New York has hired 19 attorneys to provide full-time legal assistance at no cost to immigrants in every region across the state in conjunction with the Office for New Americans, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday.

Those attorneys, who were not named in the announcement from Cuomo, will each provide legal representation to a caseload of up to 20 clients at a time, and will help immigrants with a wide range of issues, like visas, work permits and family-based immigration.
