Legal Aid Society: Brooklyn Neighborhood Office - Government Benefits and Disability Advocacy Project

Who We Are

The Legal Aid Society is a private, not-for-profit legal services organization, the oldest and largest in the nation, dedicated since 1876 to providing quality legal representation to low-income New Yorkers. The Legal Aid Society is dedicated to one simple but powerful belief: that no New Yorker should be denied access to justice because of poverty.

The Government Benefits Project helps the neediest New Yorkers obtain and maintain the government benefits to which they are entitled, such as public assistance and Medicaid, and, together with our Law Reform and Health Law units, addresses income inequality through advocacy and class action litigation, and ensures that the agencies administering public benefits programs do so with the fairness and due process required by law.

The Disability Advocacy Project provides legal services to children and adults who experience problems with the Social Security Administration.
