If you live in Bergen, Hudson, or Passaic County, have a civil (non-criminal) legal problem, and cannot afford a private attorney, please call one of our offices to find out if we can help you. In addition to multi-lingual staff, we also have extensive translation services in order to accommodate the diverse population of our service area. Our knowledgeable intake staff will introduce you to our services and determine if you are eligible for representation. You may also be able to get the assistance you need by attending one of our Pro Se Clinics. For more information, call your local NNJLS office or email us at

We strongly recommend that you call the office before coming in to make sure that an attorney will be available to talk to you. If you have an emergent legal matter, an attorney may be able to meet with you the same day. If your case is not an emergency, you will be given an appointment for a screening interview on the next available day. All services are no-cost to clients who meet NNJLS’s income and case acceptance guidelines. If NNJLS cannot help you, we will attempt to refer you to an attorney or social services agency that may be able to help you.
