Office of the Attorney General Department of Legal Affairs

The firm offers a variety of legal services, which can be divided into four areas. On behalf of the Attorney-General, the Deputy Attorney-General in charge of the Legal Aid Service advises the President and all executive authorities. The Office prepares the legal opinions of the Attorney General and issues its own written and other advice in response to requests from the President`s Adviser, the various executive agencies and other parts of the Ministry of Justice. These requests generally involve particularly complex and important legal issues, or on which two or more organizations disagree. The Office is also responsible for reviewing and advising on the constitutionality of pending legislation. All implementing regulations and substantive proclamations to be issued by the President are reviewed as to form and legality by the Office of the Legal Counsel, as well as various other matters requiring the formal approval of the President. The Division of Law (DOL) is the principal legal counsel to the State of New Jersey government. In general, this work takes three forms: through legal advice to state departments and agencies, through state defense in civil lawsuits, and through civil lawsuits against individuals, businesses, and other entities that violate the law and harm New Jersey and its residents. With nearly 500 lawyers, the DOL`s responsibilities cover a wide range of legal matters, including banking, child protection, corrections, education, environment, finance, health, insurance, tax, and transportation. Under Florida law, email addresses are public records. If you do not want your email address to be shared in response to a request from a public record, do not send an email to this entity. Instead, contact this office by phone or in writing.
