Public Defender

In order to obtain a public defender, you must be charged with a violation, misdemeanor or felony and qualify financially. The application for the public defender’s services may be obtained from the Court at your appearance. If you qualify, the Court will appoint such counsel. An attorney from Rensselaer County Public Defender’s Office will be present during court time.

Small Claims

In order to file a small claim in our Court, the person or corporation whom you are suing must either live, work or have an office in the Town of North Greenbush. The address you provide must be one that is located in the Town and cannot be a PO Box. The filing fee is $10.00 for claims $1,000 or less and $15.00 for claims over $1,000.00. You may file the paperwork at the court office during normal business hours. The Court may hear cases brought by DBA’s provided they show proof that they are in fact a DBA.

Civil Cases

In the case of evictions and other civil matters, you should contact the Court for proper procedures and information you may need.
