Welcome to the Legal Aid Society of Monmouth County.  We are a certified 501(C)(3) tax exempt charitable organization.  Our mission is to provide legal aid to indigent residents of Monmouth County.  We believe that by helping people in need, we make our community as a whole a better place.

Our staff takes calls at (732) 556-8268  Monday – Thursday 10:00am – 2:00pm to screen applicants to determine if they are eligible for legal aid.  If a candidate is eligible they fill out a detailed application to determine if they meet our financial guidelines, and case requirements.  Upon approval, our staff refers out the case to an attorney who will volunteer their time to handle the case.  

Due to the coronavirus, effective immediately (date subject to change) the Legal Aid Society of Monmouth County has suspended in-person eligibility interviews at our Ocean Township office.  Applicants may continue to apply for pro bono legal services and should telephone the office to inquire into the guidelines for eligibility and initial screening.  If it appears that the applicant may qualify, the applicant will be directed to apply online, complete and sign the online application and and return with the required eligibility documentation and information for verification which are to be scanned and emailed to monmouthlegalaidapps@gmail.com.
