Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law

Los Angeles
When I came to the Center I wanted custody of my kids. I always fought for their custody but it simply cannot be done quickly—it’s step by step. Although the Center lawyers didn’t always give me the answers I wanted to hear, they always told me what would work. With all the advice and help I had from the Center, I was able to go to court and do it on my own. I learned how to navigate the court system and present myself in court. I feel brave and empowered.

We protect victims of domestic violence and improve the well-being of children living in poverty. With the help of volunteers, the Center provides free family law assistance and legal education to the poor. We strive to empower people in need and assure them meaningful access to the courts.
