Japanese Legal Hotline

Free 24-hour Japanese Legal Hotline

The Los Angeles County Bar Association Lawyer Referral and Information Services (LACBA LRIS) announces the unprecedented launch of a free, 24-hour Japanese interpreting line to assist the local and international Japanese communities with their legal needs. The phone number is (818) 755-4277.

In collaboration with the 24/7 call center of Japanese Assistance Network, Inc. (JAN), a California Corporation that has assisted Japanese residents and travelers worldwide for over two decades, LACBA LRIS seeks to reach out to Japanese speaking nationals who are in need of legal help, but are reluctant to approach attorneys because of language and cultural barriers. The LACBA LRIS was founded in 1937 and is a bona fide public legal nonprofit organization that strives to provide quality programs to benefit the community.
