Join us at the forefront of change

Whether you’re a seasoned professional or just joining the legal community, Neighborhood Legal Services can offer you an opportunity to make a real impact in the lives of low-income individuals and communities in Los Angeles County and beyond.

NLSLA attorneys, based in offices, courthouses and clinics throughout Los Angeles County, focus on areas of the law that disproportionately impact the poor, including housing, public benefits, healthcare, immigration, and domestic violence.

Our unique blend of direct representation, policy advocacy and impact litigation, gives attorneys in all of our practice areas the opportunity to work towards systemic change. Through individual casework, our attorneys identify widespread issues negatively impacting low-income communities and address them through high-impact lawsuits and policy advocacy at the local, state and national level.

At NLSLA, we value diversity. Our staff members come from a variety of backgrounds, and bring these experiences to their work with clients. We offer services in seven languages, and develop our programs to meet the distinct needs of Los Angeles’ unique communities.
