What We Do
At Christian Legal Aid of Los Angeles, our mission is to share the love of Jesus Christ by cultivating a passion for justice in our community and providing free legal services and hope to those in need in Los Angeles County.
We hold free legal clinics at various churches and nonprofits across Los Angeles staffed by volunteer attorneys, law students, paralegals, and individuals of diverse backgrounds with a passion for justice.
CLA-LA partners with legal aid nonprofits, faith-based charities, and local churches to provide the following services:
Attorney Consultations – CLA-LA staff and volunteers provide clients 60-90 minutes of free individualized legal advice at our clinics and partner office hours. Clients are educated as to their rights and trained on how to file court documents, prepare documents and pleadings, and negotiate to protect their own rights.
Referrals – CLA-LA will generally refer clients to other attorneys and legal aid organizations when clients need ongoing representation.
Mediation services – CLA-LA will refer clients who should consider mediation to Christian and/or free mediation services, including those offered by our local law schools.
Workshops – CLA-LA offers workshops to give clients an overview of their general legal rights. These seminars are not specific to one client’s legal issues, but rather designed to give an overview of a particular area of law. Past workshop topics have included immigration, post-conviction relief, employment law, estate planning, and more.
CLA-LA is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation, and we assist clients regardless of their religion, race, color, creed, national original, ancestry, disability, gender, sexual orientation or age. CLA-LA does not provide ongoing assistance. For more information about our client services, please visit Our Clients or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
