Defending New York Citys Most Vulnerable Communities
The Legal Aid Society exists for one simple yet powerful reason:to ensure that no New Yorker is denied their right to equal justice because of poverty. For over 140 years, we have protected, defended, and advocated for those that have struggled in silence for far too long working on the front-lines and behind-the-scenes to offer our clients the exceptional legal services they deserve.
Through our Civil, Criminal Defense, and Juvenile Rights Practices, we offer an unmatched depth and breadth of legal expertise to vulnerable New Yorkers in over 300,000 legal matters each and every year.
Every day, in every borough, The Legal Aid Society changes the lives of our clients with the help of our supporters.
