New York Small Claims Court – Overview and Limits
Small claims court is a valuable resource for New Yorkers seeking justice for small disputes. Located in all 62 counties of the state, New York Small Claims Court is an informal and expeditious option to settle civil disputes between individuals or businesses that involve less than $5,000. It's important to understand the limits of this court before pursuing a case, however.
The state's Small Claims Court offers a simplified process with few rules of evidence or procedure. The parties involved must represent themselves and can't hire attorneys unless they are sued by someone who has legal counsel. This means there aren’t any jury trials available in small claims court and it is not possible to appeal decisions beyond the Appellate Division of Supreme Court in each county.
