  • Civil Division: Housing

    Lack of access to quality legal services is one of the major barriers families face in avoiding the loss of their home. LASRC works diligently to keep poor, low- and moderate-income working families in their homes. Our attorneys provide free legal help to homeowners to stop foreclosure action and to preserve the dream of home ownership for as many families as possible.

  • Civil Division: Basic Needs

    Finding the way through the benefits system can be complicated and challenging; however, for many people public benefits from county, state or federal government programs are often the only source of household income. Our attorneys work to ensure that as many people as possible preserve or obtain the benefits that they are entitled to.

One day, I came across a phone number and made a promise to myself that this would be the last number I would call for help. I said that if nobody helps me here, then I give up. Miraculously, it was LASRC. After hearing about my situation, the intake staff put  me touch with an attorney and from that point on, my life has changed tremendously. My attorney was a true symbol of hope.–Miranda

My attorney saved me and my children. From the beginning, she told me not to worry about anything. That she would handle anything and everything that came our way. My attorney went far and beyond what she had to do to help me. Any victim of domestic violence who needs a divorce will be in great hands with LASRC. –Eugenia
