In coordination with Mayor Eric Garcetti and City Attorney Mike Feuer, the Los Angeles County Bar Association is proud to participate in “LA Represents,” an initiative to enhance legal pro bono and low-cost efforts related to COVID-19. Here, the objective is to assist vulnerable tenants, victims of domestic violence and low-income individuals with employment, consumer debt, and bankruptcy matters.
Attorneys who wish to support the Los Angeles County Bar Association in the “LA Represents” effort have a number of options, outlined below. Members of the public who wish to advance justice, please consider a donation to Counsel for Justice.
