Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles
The Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles (LAFLA), established in 1929 to ensure that the poor have access to the civil justice system, is the frontline law firm for poor and low-income people in Los Angeles County and one of the largest law firms for the poor in California. LAFLA’s mission is to change lives through direct legal representation, systems change and community education. Our vision is for communities where everyone has access to justice that protects their home, livelihood, health and equality.
LAFLA's Torture Survivors Project (TSP) attends to the needs of immigrants who were victims of torture in their countries of origin. It involves both outreach and legal assistance to this diverse community of asylees and refugees.
