Asian Americans Advancing Justice - LA

Building upon the legacy of the Asian Pacific American Legal Center


In 2009, Advancing Justice - LA responded to the housing crisis by helping homeowners who faced the loss of their home to foreclosure.  Advancing Justice - LA has full-time bilingual staff who work with low income and limited English speaking homeowners who need legal assistance in their battle to keep their homes.  Assistance includes preparing loan modification applications, negotiating on behalf of homeowners with banks, and helping homeowners who are victims of modification assistance scams.

In 2013, Advancing Justice - LA partnered with four other non-profit legal service organizations to form the California Consumer Justice Coalition.  Other Coalition members are: Bet Tzedek, Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, Legal Aid Society of Orange County, and Public Counsel.  The Coalition hosts regular legal clinics at various locations in Los Angeles County, and has created a website that provides information for homeowners and consumers:

Advancing Justice - LA also provides legal assistance to tenants in residential rental units.  Advancing Justice - LA staff provide assistance to tenants who are facing eviction, who have received notices from their landlords, who have not had their security deposits returned after moving, or who are forced to live with problems that affect the health and safety of themselves or their loved one (e.g. habitability issues).


Advancing Justice-LA's helplines prioritize assistance to low-income persons in the following areas of law: family, immigration, public benefits, employment, housing, and civil rights.
