WHO WE ARE

The California Consumer Justice Coalition is a partnership between five, well-respected non-profit legal service organizations.  Coalition Members include lead agency Bet Tzedek-The House of Justice and partners Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Los Angeles, The Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, The Legal Aid Society of Orange County, and Public Counsel.  Our goal is to provide help people can trust.

WHAT WE DO

We offer FREE legal services and housing counseling to Southern Californians facing foreclosure and other issues related to consumer debt.  Sadly, these struggling individuals often become the victims of scams that can cost them their savings and their homes.  Our attorneys and housing counselors provide reliable help at no cost.

We built a website to connect people with information about the legal issues that affect their household’s financial stability.  Our Legal Check-Ups help Californians understand these legal issues, provide practical tips on what to do, and guide people to our free legal and housing counseling services.  We also provide links to resources such as financial assistance, credit counseling, job training and more.

We work with Community Allies and Partners in Government by training them to identify and guide Californians who may benefit from our services to our website and clinics.  Allies and partners include housing counselors, public librarians, faith leaders, community organizers, local elected officials, and local, state and federal government agencies. To help us spread the word, contact us at coordinator@caconsumerjustice.org.

HOW TO REACH US

Please write to us at coordinator@caconsumerjustice.org. For more information about our free legal clinics on bankruptcy, debtors' rights, foreclosure and loan modification, go to Legal Clinic Calendar, take our General Legal Check-Up, or go to Get Legal Help. The Coalition is a fiscal project of Bet Tzedek Legal Services.

WHO SUPPORTS OUR WORK

The California Attorney General funds our Coalition with a grant under the National Mortgage Settlement Fund that requires us to provide our services free of charge to foreclosure victims and others struggling with consumer debt.  Currently, our services focus on residents of Los Angeles and Orange County with some services also available in San Bernardino and Riverside County.

This website was made possible in part by generous support from U.S. Bank.
