A cosponsored family law/ domestic violence project of Black Women Lawyers of Los Angeles, Los Angeles County Bar Association and Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles

We protect victims of domestic violence and improve the well-being of children living in poverty. With the help of volunteers, the Center provides free family law assistance and legal education to low-income Angelenos.

We strive to empower people in need and assure them meaningful access to the courts.
