The Matian Firm dba La Liga Defensora contributes $5,000.00 to the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles (LAFLA) in order to help low-income immigrant families in need of legal immigration services.


Shawn Matian Esq., President of The Matian Firm dba La Liga Defensora announces it has contributed $5,000.00 to LAFLA, the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, in an effort to provide poor and low-income families throughout Los Angeles with the legal help they need. For more than 85 years, the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles (LAFLA) has provided civil legal services to poor and low-income people in Los Angeles County. Through multiple avenues, LAFLA provides legal aids to approximately 50,000 people per year and The Matian Firm is delighted to help further their reach. The Matian Firm will also be a sponsor at LAFLA’s 2018 Access to Justice Dinner.


President and founder of the Matian Firm, Shawn F Matian, “The Donald Trump administration has essentially declared war on immigrants and has abandoned the poor. As lawyers, we have an obligation to protect the rights and liberties of all those in need of legal help. LAFLA is a wonderful organization that is on the front line of helping those in legal jeopardy. The Matian Firm is honored to help organizations like LAFLA continue their work.”


Matian continues, “As Federal Government agencies like ICE and DHS become more aggressive in their tactics of detaining, deporting and separating children from families, we as a community must act to help protect what’s fundamentally right.”
