The clients served by the Legal Aid Society are both indigent and handicapped and are at the bottom rung of the economic ladder.  They come to the Legal Aid Society to redress their problems in a court of competent jurisdiction and, if deemed eligible pursuant to the Society’s guidelines, their case is referred to a Monmouth County attorney selected specifically to handle the case in question.  In 2019, the Legal Aid Society of Monmouth County interfaced with better than 1,800 Monmouth County residents.

The goal of the Legal Aid Society for 2020 and beyond remains the same as in prior years.  That is, to provide legal advice and appropriate pro bono representation to those in need.  The Legal Aid Society has implemented this mission successfully for the past seventy (70) years and is hopeful to continue to do so with continued support and partnership from the community.
