Governmental Relations: Make your voice heard in the legislative and political process

The ability of consumer attorneys to represent their clients is greatly affected by the actions of the California Legislature and the United States Congress. One good bill can correct injustice; one bad bill can create it.

CAALA, in partnership with state and national consumer attorney organizations, offers our members the opportunity to learn about important legislative issues, to advocate for the preservation of the civil justice system with elected officials and to support consumer friendly candidates seeking public office.

Outreach to Legislators
