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 and disabled residents of Monmouth County.  We believe that by helping people in need, we make our community as a whole a better place.  We are located in the Social Services Building of Monmouth County located in Ocean Township.  We are not permitted to take walk-in appointments, so please contact our office to arrange a meeting with our staff.  Please be advised that our eligibility guidelines are based on approximately 1 1/2 (one and one half) times the Federal Poverty Level.  Meaning if your income is over 1.5 times the federal poverty level you would not be eligible.

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.  

If you would like to apply and schedule an in person interview, please download and complete our application form and email it to monmouthlegalaidapps@gmail.com.  Thank you!  We look forward to assisting you.
