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 2,100 supporters. Our managing Board of Directors are 25 attorneys who have dedicated themselves to giving back to the Los Angeles 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.
