When & Where
Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles
Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles (LAFLA), the frontline law firm for the poor in Los Angeles County and the largest law firm for the poor in California, was established in 1929 to ensure that the indigent have access to the civil justice system. LAFLA seeks to provide access to justice for poor and low-income people in greater Los Angeles who face systemic barriers to equal justice, equal opportunity and, too often, basic human rights. We change lives through direct representation, systems change and community education.
LAFLA is the first place thousands of poor people turn to when they need legal assistance with a crisis that endangers their children, homes, safety and well-being. LAFLA’s holistic legal and case management services help the most vulnerable — including children growing up in poverty, victims of domestic violence, persons with disabilities, the indigent elderly, victims of torture and human trafficking, homeless and at-risk veterans and their families — secure fundamental services, health care, decent and affordable housing, employment and consumer protections, and freedom from exploitation and abuse.
