I am in awe of the work Levitt & Quinn does on behalf of children, veterans and families in need of family law services in Los Angeles. L&Q works tirelessly and successfully for its clients, and makes an enormous difference in the lives of those they serve. You'd be hard pressed to find a more dedicated group of attorneys and staff, and I am proud to be a member of their Board of Directors.

The staff at Levitt & Quinn are expert in their area of practice and care deeply about the mission and their clients. Levitt & Quinn is a unique organization in Southern California and perhaps in the country. No where else in Southern California can someone obtain free and affordable family law help and representation in such a wide range of cases. They focus on impacting children and other vulnerable populations in positive ways.

I was a volunteer for LQ's Annual Dinner. This organization does great work in an area of law that is not glamorous but is so extremely important. I personally would choose to support Levitt and Quinn over larger not-for-profits because they make such a huge difference for families and do not get the attention that the bigger organizations receive.

These clowns and who ever choose to support or donate money to them are included! The service is awfull, over rated, mismanaged by Ty and the vato running the front desk! This company should be sued and closed down for misleading the public! What a disgrace to the poor people! Whomever started this public service needs to take back their company! I was there on two days and each day there was about to be a fight with the staff and a client! I thought I was in an alley the way the staff acted! I was not suprised by the client, the client didnt work there! This staff put others in danger and refused to be the bigger person by keeping calm, keeping an indoor tone, or by calling police! I got up and left. I didnot know if the person they choose to argue with was in retaliaton mode! Who does this? I also felt a racists vibe from the staff, and after reading yelp reviews I am not the only person who felt this! Help? Help who? They are horribly. I went here thinking I was going to be helpled by a little old sophisticated attorney from Pasadena! Instead it was WWE, without the popcorn!

AMAZING..... is what I can i say about Leviit & Quinn. One of the Veteran services that works. Going through some rough times fighting a custody battle with very little income for legal help I though I would never get my son back. So I reach out to Levitt & Quinn not knowing what to expect.... Their Veteran Services really grab a hold of my case and advise me and advise me well. Now I have joint legal custody of my Son and visitation like i should have. Without Levitt & Quinn my son and I would not be sharing family time together.... They brought joy back into my life. Thanks you so much

Levitt & Quinn has been providing legal representation in Los Angeles to low-income people with family law challenges for 30 years. I first encountered Levitt & Quinn lawyers when I sat in a L.A. Superior Court family law department downtown in the mid-1990's. They represented their clients zealously and conducted themselves ethically. I joined the Levitt & Quinn board after I retired from the bench. I have always been impressed by how efficiently and economically Levitt & Quinn is able to serve its clients and still give full, effective representation. I am also impressed by how the scope of Levitt & Quinn’s family law services has expanded to include adoptions and the servicing of really underserved populations such as veterans.

I volunteered as a photographer at their annual fund-raising event. It was the most remarkable evening. The videos touched me, the stories moved me, the mission inspired me. I'm in awe of the work that the organization does, the lives it changes and the help they provide. They are a team of hard working, mountain moving angels!

L&Q is a significant and successful organization serving people "who fall through the cracks," the working poor and veterans, with issues surrounding family law. In particular, those going through the emotional process of divorce and child custody determinations often have nowhere else to turn for highly competent professional assistance. L&Q is essential and does an excellent job, despite always having to struggle for sufficient funding.

Levitt & Quinn Family Law Center is a truly successful and enduring non-profit. The services they provide are invaluable and are vital to those who are unable to obtain legal counsel and representation due to financial hardship. Levitt & Quinn offers hope for a brighter future for so many families in need in our community.

I have been a long term donor of Levitt & Quinn Family Law Center and each year, I watch them grow and further their mission. Sadly, there is a huge segment of our population that does not have access to legal services (and quite often, justice). Consequently, Levitt & Quinn fills an enormous hole in providing equal access. Under the leadership of Tai Glenn, this hardworking, professional, and success-oriented team makes a difference 365 days a year. I commend Levitt & Quinn not only as a successful non-profit, but also a community service that is essential.

I had a great experience volunteering at Levitt and Quinn for their annual fundraiser at the Skirball Center. The work that they do is truly wonderful and inspirational, it is amazing to know that there are still good hard working people in the world today. I am proud to say that I took part in such a great event and look forward to next year!
