Hundreds of thousands of Angelenos cannot afford housing, food, or medicine – let alone an attorney.
Even though free legal aid helps ensure access to justice and basic necessities for the most vulnerable among us, there is not enough legal aid available: for every legal aid attorney in California, there are more than 6,000 eligible clients who need assistance.
Bet Tzedek is a non-profit law firm committed to addressing this challenge. We provide free, comprehensive legal assistance and representation, volunteer and court-based self-help services, and legal education to more than 20,000 people each year.
Bet Tzedek’s services keep families in their homes; secure care for those with physical, developmental or intellectual disabilities; protect seniors from abuse and real estate fraud; ensure access to safe housing and legal wages; and obtain guardianships for children to stay in safe, stable homes.
