Building Communities, Ensuring Opportunity & Achieving Justice

Brooklyn Legal Services Corporation A’s purpose is to provide high-quality legal assistance to low-income individuals and community groups in Brooklyn. We view legal assistance in terms of community development, education, and mobilization, as well as traditional representation. To that end, we partner with and provide legal services to effective local grassroots organizations that have a demonstrated commitment to our common goal of social and economic justice.
