Family Using a Tablet

Since 1968, Northeast New Jersey Legal Services (NNJLS) has provided free, high-quality legal representation and advice in civil law matters to low-to-moderate income individuals throughout Bergen, Hudson, and Passaic Counties. Access to legal services often provides lifesaving representation and advocacy on behalf of residents that protects survivors of domestic violence and their children, prevents evictions and keeps families in their homes, and increases access to public benefits.


The past few years have been exceptionally difficult for low-to-moderate income families. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated many of the hardships already faced by our clients, particularly survivors of domestic violence, seniors, low income workers, and their families—many of whom live at or below the Federal poverty line.

Your support is more crucial now than ever before. Every donation to NNJLS helps us deliver critically needed legal services to families in need and will have a lasting impact
within the communities we serve.

“My attorney granted me access to a fair trial and I
as not defined by my bank account or disability, for her legal expertise allowed me to not feel limited. The truth prevailed because of her, and I am privileged to have had an attorney like her representing me.”
