LACLJ strives to provide holistic, trauma-informed services. In addition to meeting clients’ diverse legal needs, LACLJ provides clients with safety planning, psycho-education and social service referrals through its Community Care Advocacy Program.
LACLJ empowers individuals to secure long- term solutions that result in stable families, violence-free homes, and strong communities. We believe that legal education, advocacy and representation can be the difference between adversity and opportunity and that meaningful access to justice improves lives.
LACLJ provides personalized legal services to survivors of interpersonal violence and vulnerable youth.
