Individuals seeking representation specifically on matters related to the Open Public Records Act (OPRA) or Open Public Meetings Act (OPMA) are welcome to contact the Justice Gary S. Stein Public Interest Center at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden directly by emailing CJ Griffin.

Except for OPRA and OPMA matters, the Stein Public Interest Center generally does not accept requests for representation made directly by individuals. Rather, potential clients seeking pro bono assistance in a legal matter must first contact a recognized public interest law organization or other screening agency, such as the Legal Services of New Jersey, American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey, or Volunteer Lawyers for Justice, for an intake interview. If the public interest law organization determines that the individual or group qualifies for legal services, it may accept the matter directly, or it may refer the matter to the Stein Public Interest Center for representation.

If you have a question about the  Stein Public Interest Center or are a member of the media seeking an interview with one of our attorneys, you may contact us at
