LEGAL AID FOUNDATION OF LOS ANGELES
March 31, 2010
I have been involved with the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles ("LAFLA") for several years. I began as a volunteer, participating in one if the many legal clinics that LAFLA runs throughout the city. At the clinics, I met several clients who were desparately in need of legal services. I served as a pro bono attorney, working in conjunction with LAFLA in defense of multiple unlawful detainer cases. Today I am a member of LAFLA's Associate Advisory Board. LAFLA is a wonderful organization that provides much needed services to some of the city's more indigent. LAFLA has touched the lives of so many people and deserves the highest praise.
Specifically, LAFLA's Bill Smith Homeless Veterans Project works to protect veterans and their families by securing government benefits, and medical care and services, while stabilizing their living situation. This project is critical to preserve some of the most basic rights and needs of Los Angeles' homeless veterans.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
counseling and defending homeless and indigent clients on various issues, ranging from unlawful detainer defense to social security benefits.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the dedication that LAFLA brings to each and every case in an effort to bring equal access to justice for Los Angeles' most needy.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
work toward protecting veterans and their families by securing government benefits, and medical care and services, while stabilizing their living situation.
