Bet Tzedek leads a five-agency collaborative – the California Consumer Justice Coalition – to help Southern Californians caught in the state’s foreclosure crisis. With the funding from the State Attorney General’s National Mortgage Settlement Funds, the coalition’s attorneys and housing counselors walk consumers through their rights and responsibilities. To address the myriad of legal issues associated with the crisis, the coalition launches a user-friendly consumer-focused website.
In partnership with the Superior Court of Los Angeles, Bet Tzedek’s Self-Help Conservatorship Clinic helps families and caregivers navigate the complexities of the probate court’s conservatorship requirement. Nearly 1,500 litigants, who would have had to complete over 70 pages of legal paperwork on their own, received free guidance from Bet Tzedek staff and pro bono partners. As of this year, Bet Tzedek’s assistance reaches nearly 45% of all conservatorships filed in Los Angeles.
