Changing Lives

Each year NLSLA provides free access to justice for more than 80,000 people in Los Angeles County.


What We Do

Our primary mission is to combat poverty through the judicial system to improve the lives of individuals and families and in our community.  We offer free legal representation, advice and education.  We have improved health and wellness, expanded economic opportunities, and protected human rights throughout Los Angeles County. NLSLA provides free workshops to assist residents with income tax returns, naturalization applications, worker's rights concerns, and foreclosure prevention.   We're designed to meet our clients where they are.  We have toll-free hotlines, Self-Help Legal Access Centers inside ten LA County Superior Courthouses, three Medical Legal Community Partnerships and numerous walk-in clinics and workshops.
