Legal Aid Society

We deliver justice in every borough, working tirelessly to make our city a better place.

Our Mission

The Legal Aid Society is built upon one simple but powerful belief: that no New Yorker should be denied the right to equal justice.

Need Help?

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.

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.
