The Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law (the Center) was founded in the early 1980s by the Black Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County Bar, and the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles. Since its inception, the Center has served as a cornerstone of family law and domestic violence assistance for low-income persons in California.
The Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law protects victims of domestic violence and improves 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. The Center strives to empower people in need and assure them meaningful access to the courts; it aspires to create a community where poverty is not a barrier to those who seek to resolve critical family law matters.
