Neighborhood Legal Services is a steadfast advocate for individuals, families and communities throughout Los Angeles County. Through a combination of individual representation, high impact litigation and public policy advocacy, NLSLA combats the immediate and long-lasting effects of poverty and expands access to health, opportunity, and justice in Los Angeles’ diverse neighborhoods.
NLSLA operates ten Self-Help Legal Access Centers across Los Angeles County—the largest network of self-help centers in California. Piloted by Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, the NLSLA Centers have helped close to a million people access the courts during the past decade. The Centers are staffed by NLSLA advocates, legal services partners’ staff, dedicated volunteers, and Justice Corps students.
The Centers provide guidance to litigants:
- Requiring protection from domestic violence
- Resolving child custody disputes
- Seeking a divorce
- Halting an eviction to avoid being homeless.
Self-Help Centers are located at Courthouses in Antelope Valley, Compton, Inglewood, Long Beach, Pasadena, Pomona, San Fernando, Santa Monica, Torrance, and Van Nuys. The Center in Lancaster is located at the Michael D. Antonovich Antelope Valley Courthouse. Click here for more info on Self-Help Centers.
