Today’s harsh legal and economic realities disproportionately affect people with low incomes, especially in marginalized communities. The effects of this injustice are felt throughout the borough. No person should ever be denied access to justice due to income, disability, or identity.
Access Justice Brooklyn partners with compassionate pro bono attorneys to provide high-quality, civil legal services that help ensure equal access to the legal system. Our clients face threatened homelessness, devastating debt, family breakdowns, uncertain immigration status, and ongoing predatory practices that target low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. Our direct services, education, and outreach are not only essential for individuals, but also crucial for dismantling systemic barriers to justice.
