Presentation for the Latina Lawyers Bar Association

During a presentation to the board of the Latina Lawyers of Los Angeles Association, Alicia Molina, one of the Center’s bilingual volunteer attorneys, expressed how valuable it is to speak Spanish with Latina clients and understand their cultural background especially when discussing domestic violence and immigration issues. Johanna Sanchez, another Center volunteer attorney, credited the Center for helping her keep her “professional skills sharp” as she gave clients legal advice. Executive Director, Betty Nordwind, invited more Latina lawyers to volunteer with a focus on the Latina clients who represent 69% of the women who come to the Center.
