Hiring a lawyer can be expensive, but it doesn't have to be the case. Depending on the level of legal help you need, there are a range of ways to get free legal advice in Los Angeles.


Just the facts

Before looking for an attorney or seeking legal help, take the initiative and learn the basics of California law on your own. Of course, it will not bypass the crossbar, but it helps to enter into a situation armed with information as much as possible.


In some cases, with small claims, knowledge of the law may be all you need. You may be able to settle or resolve your dispute out of court.


The Law Library is one of the most useful open legal literature resources in Los Angeles, which also happens to be the second largest public law library in the United States. Its main focus is California law. Within its stacks, you'll find codes, cases, legal encyclopedias, an appeal summary, legislative history information, and more.


The main branch is at Los Angeles Civic Center. However, the Law Library also has sub-collections in courts in Santa Monica, Long Beach, Norwalk, Pomona, and Torrance. It operates interlibrary partnerships with the Pasadena Public Library Compton Library, the Lancaster Regional Library and the Los Angeles Public Library's Van Nuys Library.


In addition, the library offers two useful remote services to answer questions: you can email the librarian or contact the librarian via real-time chat on your computer.

Government Legal Aid in Los Angeles

If going to court or mediating through attorneys becomes necessary, and you can't afford it, fear not, you may be able to get legal aid through a government-funded organization.


The Los Angeles Legal Aid Foundation (LAFLA) is primarily funded by a non-profit organization established by Congress to provide civil legal aid nationwide.


The areas of law covered are family law, housing and eviction, home ownership and individual rights, community and economic development, government benefits, immigration law, and employment.


Its central office is located in downtown Los Angeles. Its offices in the Sixth District serve the following areas: East Los Angeles, West Side, South Los Angeles, Pico Union, Koreatown and Long Beach. In addition, LAFLA also operates self-help legal aid centers in the courts of Long Beach, Santa Monica, Torrance, and Englewood.


At these centers you can get information about court procedures, get one-on-one help, attend a legal workshop, get required court forms, and get help reviewing court forms after they are filled out (from trained legal professionals).

Free monthly legal clinic

On the first Saturday of every month, the Beverly Hills Bar Association hosts its monthly legal clinic for attorneys. During the event - which takes place between 10 a.m. and noon - volunteer attorneys from the association answer questions on a variety of topics such as landlord/tenant disputes, wills and trusts, and legal issues facing businesses.


This clinic is currently held in La Cienega Park (La Cienega at the Olympic Games, 8400 Gregory Way).


For more information, please visit the Beverly Hills Bar Association website.


Pro Bono Legal Help

The term “public interest” means “the free legal work of a lawyer for indigent clients, religious, charitable, and other not-for-profit entities”. Obviously, this type of assistance is provided at the discretion of the attorney. However, it is good to know that the American Bar Association has become a champion for free legal services.


In this context, when looking for a lawyer willing to do free work, the best place to start is the American Bar for Bono in California directory.


In Los Angeles, the professional organization lists some of the following free agencies:


  • Immigration Legal Aid Project
  • Beit Yazidak for Legal Services
  • Harriet Bohai Center for Family Law
  • Public Lawyers Law Center
