Free Legal Aid

Speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.  Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.                                                                                 

 -Proverbs 31:8,9

Christian Legal Aid Office ("CLAO") exists to enable local churches and Christian attorneys to heed God's call to serve and defend the poor and needy, and to administer justice equally and fairly.  God's Word encourages Christians to settle their differences out of court; however, there are times when an individual's rights can only be properly defended by use of the legal system.  

 If a person does not have the financial resources to hire an attorney, she is left to navigate the intricate legal system on her own.  This is where CLAO can help.  To those in Orange County, CA who qualify financially, CLAO offers pro bono legal guidance, advice, and counseling.  Our attorney volunteers are ready to serve by providing free counseling at the CLAO legal aid clinics and possibly through representation in court.
