Over 2.6 million New Jersey residents live in actual poverty. Each year they face over one million civil legal issues for which they need a lawyer. Legal Services is their greatest and last resort. We need your help to:

  • Secure and protect housing for those facing eviction or foreclosure.
  • Provide relief and redress from unscrupulous sellers and lenders.
  • Gain safety for victims of violence.
  • Obtain justice for New Jersey’s most vulnerable populations: children, seniors, those with special needs, immigrants who fled their countries to protect their families.

Unlike in criminal cases, there is no guarantee of representation in civil legal matters. The New Jersey Legal Services system, a network of six non-profit corporations with offices in every county, fills much of this justice gap.

Thanks to your support, Legal Services programs in New Jersey help low-income residents with a variety of civil legal problems.

We took over 45,000 cases last year, but so much more needs to be done.

We need your help to do more.
The justice gap continues for New Jersey residents living in poverty. Your gift will help close that gap and make sure that no one is denied their right to justice in a civil legal case because they cannot afford an attorney.
