LEGAL AID FOUNDATION OF LOS ANGELES

The Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles (LAFLA) is a nonprofit law firm that provides direct client services to more than 100,000 of the most vulnerable Angelinos, ensuring that those living in poverty are treated fairly under the justice system.

Driven by a need to provide both compassion and humanity, LAFLA fights for justice for all.
