Brandmeyer Gilligan & Dockstader's own Nadine C. Orliczky is volunteering at the Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law and will be conducting a Trial pro bono for one of its low-income clients. 

About the Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law
The Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law (The Center) was founded in the early 1980s by Black Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County Bar and 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.

Who We Help
Utilizing volunteers comprised primarily of lawyers and law students, the Center providesfree direct legal assistanceto over 1,000 very poor persons and 2,000 children each year. Through its community outreach, legal education and referral efforts the Center impacts more than 5,000 individuals each year.  The Center handles the most personal and important legal problems an individual can face; issues regarding personal safety, the well-being of children and a family’s economic security. The majority of individuals who come to the Center are mothers, victims of domestic violence and living with their children earning an average of $900 per month. They arrive at the Center desperate, confused and in often grim circumstances. The Center’s pioneering methods of self-help assistance empower people in need making them a full partner in the effort to present their cases in court. The success of the Center’s program has led to its adaptation by other institutions and agencies in Los Angeles.

Mission
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. 

Vision
We aspire to create a community where poverty is not a barrier to those who seek to resolve critical family law matters. read more
