More Angelenos than ever – especially the elderly. low-wage workers and disabled – simply can’t afford a lawyer when the need arises.
We help more than 20,000 individuals each year seek justice – at zero cost to them. All of our clients are low-income according to federal guidelines and have widely diverse racial, religious and ethnic backgrounds.
For more than four decades, Bet Tzedek has secured the necessities of life for members of our community. We’ve tracked down slumlords, rewritten regulations to protect low-income workers and worked to access reparations for Holocaust survivors.
Our unique approach combines direct legal representation with powerful outreach, education and legislative advocacy. These components ensure that justice is achieved for those who have been wronged – and also prevent future unlawful or unjust actions.
