What We Do - Our Mission Statement

The primary purpose of the Los Angeles Trial Lawyers' Charities (LATLC) is to make a positive difference in the quality of life for people within the greater Los Angeles area, focusing on issues related to education, children, survivors of abuse, persons with disabilities, and homelessness, by providing financial assistance and volunteer service to groups in need. LATLC is a nonprofit public benefit corporation and organized exclusively for charitable purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Who We Are - Trial Lawyers Helping People

LATLC was founded in 2006 by a group of seven plaintiff personal injury attorneys practicing within the greater Los Angeles Area. LATLC has grown from the original seven founders to an organization of more than 3,000 supporters. Our managing Board of Directors are individuals who have dedicated themselves to giving back to the community and who volunteer their time to help our organization. LATLC's members are committed to making a positive impact on the lives of those in need throughout Southern California. We proudly draw our membership base from the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA), California Employment Lawyers Association (CELA), California Applicants Attorneys Association (CAAA) and Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) - though we are not officially affiliated with any of these organizations.
