We deliver justice in every borough, working tirelessly to make our city a better place.
The Legal Aid Society is built upon one simple but powerful belief: that no New Yorker should be denied the right to equal justice.
Every day, in courthouses and communities across the city, we advocate for the rights of all New Yorkers. Start here to see how we can help you.
Rights are like a muscle. The more you flex them, the stronger they get. For you, and your community.
Mass incarceration has a devastating impact on families and communities and the negative effects continue after time is served.

The Legal Aid Society is asking lawmakers to make New York more just for young people by prioritizing critical legislation.
The Legal Aid Society is fighting to end slavery as punishment for a crime in New York State, 158 years after the ratification of the 13th Amendment.
At the Legal Aid Society, we work towards increasing access to justice for low-income New Yorkers. Whether in the courtroom or in the community, we are tireless in our dedication to this mission.
