The Legal Aid Society of Nassau County is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping indigent persons in criminal legal matters and in certain family court matters including those involving child custody and support issues.


Our office is divided into 4 legal bureaus: County Court (felony criminal cases), District Court (misdemeanor criminal cases), Family Court, and Appeals (both criminal and Family court cases).

We also have a Social Work bureau which assists our clients in a variety of ways.


Our office does not choose or select which parties will become clients. Parties seeking representation of Nassau Legal Aid must ask a criminal or family court judge to assign us to their case. For more on what we do, click here.
