AIDSLaw of Louisiana, Inc. (Non-Profit) is the only specialized HIV/AIDS non-profit law firm in the state of Louisiana. I have watched AIDSLaw fight stigma and discrimination in the HIV/AIDS community, get clients on social security disability which gets them off free care, they have launched a new and exciting immigration phase to their strategic plan whereby they are assiting immigrants with residency/VISA issues. AIDSLaw is invloved with making policy changes to schoold boards and hospitals where their policies do not conform with current HIV/AIDS law. AIDSLaw advocates on behalf of the HIV/AIDS community and it has being doing so for 20 years. It is a great organization that fights for change and promotes access to care.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

AIDSLaw just won 9 out 10 social security cases over a period of 6 months. The immigration phases were launched a few months ago and AIDSLaw is already on phase three of four phases. AIDSLaw has assisted 1000's of clients with accessing care over 20 yrs.

AIDSLaw of Louisiana, Inc. is a Louisiana non-profit corporation that was formed by a group of attorneys and legal professionals in New Orleans in 1989. At that time it was realized that the individual efforts were not sufficient to meet the the legal needs of the indigent clients with HIV/AIDS. AIDSLaw is the ONLY AIDS service organization that is dedicated exclusively to the legal needs of this group of people, free of any charge.

AIDSLaw of Louisiana is a unique nonprofit legal organization in that it serves individuals living with HIV/AIDS in Louisiana. I've witnessed the work the agency does as a law clerk, attorney, and board member. It fills a much-needed niche in the community by providing representation for clients on a variety of legal issues, including estate planning and public benefits.
