About Us

Los Angeles Dependency Lawyers, Inc. (LADL) is the largest organization in the nation protecting indigent parents and familes from agency overreach. When a state child welfare agency attempts to interfere in the parent-child relationship, parents are in desperate need of vigorous advocacy by specially-trained counsel. LADL attorneys are appointed to represent parents in crisis, helping families remain intact or regain custody of children the state has removed from their home. LADL attorneys lead interdisciplinary teams including a LADL social workers, investigators, medical and other experts, and experienced supervisors, in preparing and presenting legal defenses daily in court. LADL executes our legal work with innovation, passion, and the highest ethical principals. LADL also expands our advocacy by engaging in the ongoing policy and legislative conversations regarding parents' rights, at the county, state, and national levels.


Los Angeles Dependency Lawyers, Inc. seeks energetic California attorneys, or soon-to-be law school graduates taking the July Bar, who are committed to the fight for social justice, intellectually excited to defend the constitutionally protected relationship between parents and their children, and sufficiently resilient to engage in daily battle against the generational effects of poverty, racism, addiction, domestic violence and mental health conditions. Attorney positions are available immediately, and post-bar internships begin on August 10, 2020. LADL attorneys go through a multi-tiered training period to prepare them for the stimulating and electric atmosphere of the 25 courtrooms in Monterey Park and the 3 courtrooms in Lancaster. LADL attorneys have frequent client contact and litigate contested matters daily, protecting and reunifying L.A. County's most vulnerable families. LADL offers competitive salary and benefits based on experience.
