Northeast New Jersey Legal Services’ (NNJLS) mission is to ensure equal access to justice for low-income residents of Bergen, Hudson, and Passaic Counties, New Jersey. No one should be denied a meaningful opportunity to have their day in court simply because they cannot afford a lawyer. NNJLS is a private non-profit public interest law firm that provides free legal representation in civil matters to low-income and underserved individuals and families. We also work to increase the public’s knowledge of their rights and responsibilities through community legal education. NNJLS focuses on four core areas of civil law – housing, consumer, family, and public benefits. These are the areas in which our clients are most likely to develop legal problems which they cannot address by themselves. With experienced attorneys on staff in each office, NNJLS works to ensure that clients do not lose their housing due to eviction or foreclosure; that they are not harassed by debt collectors or victimized by unfair business practices; that they and their families have fair custody and support arrangements in the event of separation or divorce; and that they can receive the public benefits and other forms of income support they need to maintain their independence and meet their daily needs. NNJLS also has specialized programs in place to address the legal needs of veterans; senior citizens; survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual assault; recent immigrants; persons living with HIV/AIDS; job-seekers facing legal barriers to employment; the homeless; and low-income residents who have federal income tax issues.
