Serving Those in Need

Christopher Kendall, an associate at O’Melveny & Myers LLP, is passionate about his volunteer work with the Domestic Violence Project–just one of the pro bono legal service projects funded by the Los Angeles County Bar Foundation. “I believe it’s my duty to serve those less fortunate,” says Kendall.

YOUR Foundation provides pro bono services to low-income persons in the Los Angeles community who need a lawyer but cannot afford one, so they come to our projects for help:

  • Domestic Violence Project
  • Immigration Legal Assistance Project
  • AIDS Legal Services Project
  • Veterans Pro Bono Project

The numbers are astounding:

  • 20,000 people were helped last year.
  • $3.6 million in pro bono hours were donated.
  • 350 attorneys, law students and paralegals volunteered their time.

Without your generous, tax-deductible donation, people who need legal assistance but are unable to pay for it would have nowhere to turn. A woman desperately needing a restraining order to keep her family safe…a husband trying to help his wife to come and legally live with him in the United States…a woman with AIDS needing to name a guardian for her children…a veteran fighting for visitation rights with his children–These are just a few of the people you can help by donating to the Foundation.

Our volunteers are passionate about what they do. Read Kendall's message above, and consider how you can make a difference.
