Bet Tzedek Legal Services
Bet Tzedek Legal Services promotes social and economic justice for our clients by providing free legal services to those with low income.
At Bet Tzedek Legal Services, we work closely with all of the programs at JF&CS. This collaborative approach enables us to provide personalized client services, recognizing that an individual’s legal needs are often intertwined with the need for essential human services and other support.
A network of volunteer attorneys and law firms provides pro bono legal representation to clients, as well as ancillary services to the Bet Tzedek program. Bet Tzedek relies on this generous support to enhance the mission of its program.
