After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, trial lawyers pledged to do what they do best – give voice to the voiceless. They committed to providing free legal services to any family who applied for help from a newly created federal fund. Trial Lawyers Care (TLC) was the nonprofit organization that made those free legal services possible.
TLC has counseled 4,000 families and more than 1,100 lawyers have provided free legal help to more than 1,700 families who applied for financial help. Lawyers provided a combined total of more than 100 years of service on these cases.
Today, Trial Lawyers Care continues to ensure its goal of making legal representation available to those in need, from disaster relief and detained immigrants to our military heroes and special forces, those who need their rights protected will have effective representation.
With life-altering subjects, many of the TLC participants have decided to show a different side of our profession – while advocating on behalf of our clients, we take a moment to have fun with our team and our respected colleagues.
The Simon Law Group kicked off the #TrialLawyersCareLipSyncChallenge. For each firm who creates and posts a Lip Sync Challenge video, The Simon Law Firm would donate to the Los Angeles Trial Lawyer’s Charities (LATLA).
Since its founding in 2006, the LATLA donated:
- Over 550,000 pounds of food;
- Over $120,000 in college scholarships;
- Over $100,000 to youth sports;
- And over Over $4,000,000
