What type of lawyer would handle false advertising in NYC?

While the "Consumer Protection" area isn't a bad thought specialty wise given your question I've moved it to "Education" as you may get more responses from those practicing regularly in that realm. Good luck!
This is a fact specific question as to whether this is actionable but an education attorney with a specific practice in higher education would likely be your best bet.
Any attorney who handles litigation matters can probably help you. You're going to have to prove that the school made false statements with the intention of misleading you. That's going to be difficult.
Be aware that this response does not create an attorney/client relationship. I live and work in Massachusetts and may or may not know the local laws where you live. I hope people find my responses not only helpful but somewhat entertaining as well. If you rely on this as legal advice, remember the old saying, "You get what you pay for."
