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.

Services Offered include Housing (landlord-tenant and foreclosure related matters), Government Benefits, Family law and Consumer law matters.
