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.
