Bet Tzedek – The House of Justice
For the past 40 years, Bet Tzedek has provided free, comprehensive legal services for low-income individuals and families in Los Angeles, proving that access to justice makes a difference in people’s lives. It is the difference between having a home and living on the streets, between getting paid or having to go hungry, between access to medical care and supportive services or suffering.
From humble beginnings as a small group of volunteer attorneys helping Holocaust survivors facing gentrification in the Fairfax District, Bet Tzedek has grown into a public interest law firm with a footprint across Los Angeles County and beyond, with practice area expertise in Elder/Caregiver Law, Employment Rights, Guardianships, Human Trafficking, Health, Holocaust Reparations, Housing, Public Benefits and more.
Our more than 60 staff, including 30 attorneys, seeks innovative solutions to persistent poverty. Whether harnessing the power of technology to overcome barriers or mobilizing communities through collaborative partnerships, we seek to empower the more than 15,000 people we serve every year with the help of hundreds of pro bono attorneys and volunteers.
