New Jersey has actively practicing lawyers, working across the private and public sectors. There are several institutions that function statewide, and others working at regional levels and/or across a specific niche. The Legal Services of New Jersey (LSNJ) is the primary institution which coordinates free legal assistance to low-income New Jersey residents for civil cases. It also has its hotline and website where residents can ask for free legal advice. The LSNJ has an office in every county of New Jersey.
