Small Business Help from OATH

Small business owners who do not have a lawyer or a paid, professional, registered representative OATH is here to assist you. 

OATH will provide you with the opportunity to speak with an OATH Procedural Justice Coordinator who can provide you with legal information and resources to help you prepare for your case. These individuals can provide you with information about the hearing process, the options available to you, and answer questions that you may have. These individuals *cannot* provide you with legal advice. Free foreign language services are available upon request.

OATH maintains a strong working relationship with NYC’s Department of Small Business Services (SBS) and our Procedural Justice Coordinators can refer you to specialized agents at SBS that can help you address specific business needs including:

  • Free consultations and business site visits so you can find out how to stay in compliance with New York City regulations and avoid fines, tickets, and citations;
  • Free assistance from Small Business Advocates and other resources throughout New York City to help you cut through the red tape at City and State regulatory, permitting and licensing agencies;
  • Free Pro Bono Legal Assistance for Small Businesses through SBS that will help you with a wide range of issues from HR employment contracts to commercial lease renewal
  • More links to helpful information for small businesses can be found below.
