Overview


Mission Statement

The Public Law Center, Orange County's non-profit pro bono law firm, is committed to providing access to justice for low-income residents. Through volunteers and staff, the Public Law Center provides free civil legal services, including counseling, individual representation, community education, and strategic litigation and advocacy to challenge societal injustices.

Background Statement

Now in its 38th year of service, PLC works with over 1,600 volunteer lawyers, paralegals and law students from throughout the county who volunteer their time and expertise.  Our volunteers include partners and associates at major Orange County law firms, sole and small firm practitioners, young lawyers, law students, college students and an array of others concerned about ensuring access to justice. In addition to providing legal services directly to clients, PLC’s staff works to make certain that volunteers have the tools necessary to properly represent their clients.  PLC carefully screens new cases to ensure that the matters are appropriate for placement with a volunteer attorney.  PLC staff monitors all cases from the client’s first contact with PLC until the case closes.  PLC provides training in a variety of critical areas of importance for our volunteers, as well as substantive backup from the expert advocates on our staff.   PLC staff assists with interpretation for non-English speaking clients who do not have their own interpreters and for volunteers who do not have diverse language capabilities in their office.  Most importantly, PLC provides Orange County attorneys with the opportunity to help make sure that access to civil justice is available to all.

Impact Statement

In 2017, PLC staff and volunteers provided legal services directly benefitting 8,000 low-income individuals. PLC volunteer attorneys contributed 20,178 hours of free legal services in 2017; volunteer paralegals and law students contributed another 7,751 hours for a total of 28,261 hours of free volunteer legal services in 2017. The total value of services provided by PLC’s volunteer lawyers, paralegals and law students in 2017 is $12,065,663. In addition, PLC staff lawyers and legal assistants provided 31,358 hours of free legal services in 2017, valued at $8,694,800. Accordingly, PLC provided a total of 59,619 hours of free legal services in 2017 valued at $20,760,463.

Needs Statement

1. Volunteer lawyers and law students to provide pro bono legal services. Last year over 1,600 volunteer lawyers, law students and others volunteered with PLC. Given the number of clients who seek our services, we always need additional volunteers.
2. Bilingual volunteers to ensure we provide language access for our clients. A large portion of our clients are Limited English Proficient individuals. Despite the fact that a large portion of our staff is bilingual, we always need volunteers to assist us with interpretation and translation.
3. Financial resources to support our programs. Prolonged, record low interest rates caused a reduction in funding from the State Bar of California’s Interest on Lawyers Trust Account (IOLTA) program. From 2008 to 2016, we estimate we have lost over $2 million in revenues we would have received but for the recession.
4. Sufficient space to operate our programs. For the last several years, we have operated under a severe space crunch. In order to house our staff and our volunteers who choose to work in our office, we are in need of additional space.
5. Silent Auction donations. Our annual Volunteers for Justice Dinner has a very popular silent auction component. We are always in need of additional donations for our Silent Auction.


CEO Statement

Our clients’ cases cover a wide range of issues including domestic violence, human trafficking, guardianship, housing, health, bankruptcy, asylum, family law, consumer fraud and immigration. We also provide free legal advice and representation to Orange County non-profit organizations, so they can better meet their legal obligations and focus on providing services. 
Because of the tremendous commitment of volunteer attorneys, law students, paralegals and others in Orange County, PLC is able to greatly leverage its resources and the efforts of its staff.  For every $1 we raise, we are able to provide $8 worth of free legal services. The estimated value of this work is over $20 million in 2017 alone. 
PLC’s work is a mix of direct representation, brief counsel and advice, recruitment, training and mentoring of lawyers and law students, training of staff at non-profit organizations, law enforcement and other governmental agencies, advocacy before local, state and federal policy makers and strategic impact litigation to challenge societal injustices.
PLC’s staff provides direct services to clients and also makes certain that our volunteers have the tools necessary to properly assist those clients referred to them. Our volunteers include partners and associates at major law firms, in-house corporate counsel, solo and small firm practitioners, young lawyers, law students, college students and an array of others concerned about ensuring access to justice. For most lawyers and law students in Orange County, PLC is the place to turn when they think of pro bono legal services.

Programs


Operation Veterans Re-Entry

Operation Veteran’s Re-Entry, provides free legal services to low-income Orange County veterans and their families to assist them in removing barriers that stand in their way as they seek to re-enter mainstream, civilian society. PLC partners with Volunteers of America, U.S. Vets and a range of other organizations in this effort. PLC’s project is staffed in part with lawyers funded through AmeriCorps, as part of Equal Justice Works’ Veterans Legal Corp.
Budget  $175,000.00
Category  Crime & Legal, General/Other Legal Services
Population Served Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent Homeless Families
Program Short-Term Success  Operations Veterans Re-Entry will provide free legal assistance to low-income Orange County veterans and their families at a variety of different locations throughout the county.
Program Long-Term Success  Through Operation Veterans Re-Entry, Orange County low-income veterans and their families will be on their way to overcoming barriers that prevent them from re-connecting with mainstream, civilian society.
Program Success Monitored By  The success of Operation Veterans Re-Entry will be monitored through interviews with clients and regular check-ins with our various community partners. 
Examples of Program Success  On a cold and rainy evening, PLC met Sean (not his real name) at the legal clinic we conduct when the Santa Ana and Fullerton National Guard Armories open as temporary homeless shelters. Sean was visibly distraught and frustrated. He had a DUI conviction on his record preventing him from getting a job. He was ashamed he was living out of his car and barely had enough money to buy gas to move it each night to prevent towing. Sean was an honorably discharged combat Veteran who served in Afghanistan. When he first returned from overseas he had a hard time adjusting to civilian life and started self-medicating with alcohol to cope with his PTSD. Sean had made progress – he was actively seeking treatment and had a job lined up. But he needed an expungement of the DUI conviction to trade the keys to his car for the keys to safe housing and a more stable life. PLC stepped in to assist Sean’s re-entry into civilian life. Today, Sean is sober, employed, housed, and living a happy civilian life.

Human Trafficking & Immigrants' Rights

PLC is part of a coalition led by Waymakers to provide services to victims of the growing crime of human trafficking. PLC provides free legal representation to victims in the areas of immigration, civil litigation and other appropriate legal remedies so they can begin their lives anew.  PLC also provides assistance to crime victims eligible for "U" Visas, abandoned and neglected youth eligible for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, battered spouses eligible to self petition under the Violence Against Women Act and persons seeking asylum.
Budget  375,000

Program Short-Term Success  We seek to obtain appropriate immigration relief for eligible immigrant victims of crime and refugees in Orange County.
Program Long-Term Success  We seek to stabalize immigrant victim's lives by helping them obtain lawful status in the U.S., thereby better allowing them an opportunity to escape the cycle of violence.
Program Success Monitored By  We monitor our success through interviews with clients and through regular communication with the various community partners with whom we work.
Examples of Program Success  A young Thai woman left her family to travel to another country to work for a family as a nanny. This was not an easy decision, but she and her husband desperately needed income to support their kids. When she arrived in the other country, the family confiscated her passport, would not pay her agreed upon wages, and threatened to have her arrested if she tried to leave. She was now alone in a foreign country, thousands of miles from her family, and a victim of domestic servitude. The family brought the young woman to Orange County to care for their children while they were on vacation. It was during this trip that she was able to escape her traffickers and reach PLC. PLC referred the case to pro bono lawyers who successfully petitioned the U.S. Government for a “T” visa for the young woman and derivative applications for her husband and five kids. The young woman now resides legally in the U.S. and is awaiting reunification with her family, whom she has not seen for over three years.

Community Organizations Legal Assistance

PLC makes free legal services available to community-based nonprofit organizations, childcare centers and providers. PLC will also help micro-business owners who meet certain eligibility criteria. Through our network of volunteer attorneys, COLAP provides free legal services to existing nonprofit organizations serving Orange County’s low-income population as well as to groups that want to form such organizations. In addition, through community partners, we also offer free or low-cost workshops on a variety of legal topics.

Budget  50,000
Category  Crime & Legal, General/Other Legal Services
Population Served General/Unspecified
Program Short-Term Success 
We help ensure Orange County non-profit organizations are able to address legal issues they confront allowing them to focus more efforts on advancing their various missions.  We also ensure that microentrepenuers receive legal assistance, without which their small business would be crippled.
Program Long-Term Success 
We seek to strengthen the Orange County non-profit community to enable it to better serve the public and become an even more vibrant part of the fabric of Orange County.  We also enable low-income microentrepenuers to develop small businesses that can serve as their means of escaping poverty.
Program Success Monitored By 
Through periodic surveys and client interviews, we are able to better adapt our services to the needs of the community.
Examples of Program Success 

A low-income Orange County small business owner came to PLC because he had received a cease and desist letter from a large company with regard to a logo he was using on his clothing line. Concerned that he did not have enough money to hire an attorney to respond, the client approached PLC with a request for pro bono representation. A PLC volunteer attorney not only prepared a response to the cease and desist letter, greatly relieving the client’s worry about a subsequent lawsuit, but he also worked with the client to prepare trademark applications for two alternative trademarks. As well as helping to avoid a business damaging lawsuit against this client, the pro bono lawyer’s work will help this low-income client’s small business grow and develop.
