Bet Tzedek Legal Services

Bet Tzedek was founded in 1974 by a small group of lawyers, rabbis, and community activists who sought to act upon a central tenet of Jewish law and tradition: “Tzedek, tzedek tirdof – Justice, justice you shall pursue.” This doctrine establishes an obligation to advocate the just causes of the poor and helpless. Consistent with this mandate, Bet Tzedek provides assistance to all eligible needy residents throughout Los Angeles County, regardless of their racial, religious, or ethnic background.
Bet Tzedek provides free, expert legal advice and representation to low-income residents of Los Angeles County. Each year our lawyers and paralegals assist more than 15,000 people of every racial, religious, and ethnic background through direct legal service, impact litigation, legislative advocacy, and the generous contributions of our many volunteers.
