Northeast New Jersey Legal Services’s (NNJLS) mission is to ensure equal access to justice for residents of Bergen, Hudson, and Passaic Counties, NJ experiencing poverty. No one should be denied a meaningful opportunity to have their day in court simply because they cannot afford a lawyer.
In 2021, we helped...
individuals with serious legal problems who could not afford a private attorney
senior citizens with legal matters putting their independence at risk
survivors of domestic violence who obtained protection orders and financial support
tenants facing eviction
consumers victimized by fraud, identity theft, and overwhelming debt
household members of clients we assisted
