How We Help

Empowering Change for Health and Well-Being
At LASSB, we understand that the forces of change extend beyond traditional healthcare. Often, the profound impact of social factors on a person’s well-being can be even greater than access to medical care. Unfortunately, civil legal issues that play a pivotal role in one’s health and overall quality of life are frequently overlooked. These encompass issues like substandard housing conditions, the loss of crucial public benefits, workplace difficulties, and the trauma of domestic violence. 

Enter our groundbreaking Medical-Legal Partnerships, where a remarkable synergy takes shape. Here, healthcare professionals can seamlessly connect patients with our dedicated LASSB attorneys, who become unwavering advocates for their rights. Our legal experts provide not only invaluable consultations and direct representation but also work tirelessly to educate and empower the broader community and healthcare providers alike. This holistic approach serves as a catalyst for profound enhancements in health outcomes, especially among underserved populations.
