Legal Aid Society


Welcome to Our New Website!

A message from Janet Sabel, Attorney-in-Chief and Chief Executive Officer of The Legal Aid Society:

“For over 140 years The Legal Aid Society has been providing justice in every borough of New York City for hundreds of thousands of people every single year.

From court room to community center we are where you need us most, equipped with the experience that matters. At this moment in our society, you need to know your rights, how to get legal help, and how to find answers to your most pressing questions.

This new website was built for you, to provide you with the information you need. It also gives us a place to boast about the incredible accomplishments of the two thousand people at The Legal Aid Society who work with you in your communities. I hope you agree that our new website…. and new look… serve you well.”
