Though we run some links on our side-bar for legal advisories, lawyer referrals, and groups like the ACLU, which does class action law suits, we are often asked about lawyers in Southern California who do civil action law suits for people who are destitute. Most lawyers are in it for the money and don't really care about us.
SO IF YOU ARE A LAWYER, YOU HAVE A LAWYER YOU LIKE, or you want to tell us about a lawyer who didn't do right by you, there is our COMMENT option. (Please provide a link to a web site when possible.)
We think all the agreements we sign to not sue are a lot of BS, because usually there is no choice, unless you want to go back to the street or without medical care, and signing is under duress. We think agreeing to arbitration is typical of how poor people in America are asked to be agreeable in order to have services or go without.
Currently we know people who would like to sue nonprofits like North East Valley Medical Clinic and Olive View Medical Center and West Valley Mental Health for medical malpractice or psychology malpractice including misdiagnosis, malingering on treatment, failure to protect medical privacy, damaging a persons reputation or ability to get work as a result of discussing shelter resident's medical or psychological diagnosis with other residents or clients, as well as for the breaking of contractual agreements by shelters to get them housing.
Homeless are also dealing with being the victims of crime including rape and violence by other people living or working at a shelter, where management and security guards hide or fail to report crime or allow perpetrators remain while kicking out victims.
SO.... ANY LAWYERS OUT THERE WHO CARE?
