Justice in the courtroom. Service in the community.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, Los Angeles Trial Lawyers’ Charities has limited resources for our partner charity grants this year. Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide grants to NEW charities that LATLC has not previously partnered with nor funded in the past. We are hopeful that soon we will be able to accept applications from new partner charities to help members of the community in need.

If we HAVE supported you in the past, please click on the link below to apply:
