Our Asian Language Legal Intake Project (ALLIP) provides toll-free hotlines in Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), Filipino (Tagalog), Korean, Thai, and Vietnamese. 

The intake team also provides help in English, and other languages.

Callers receive resources, counseling or referral to an Advancing Justice-LA attorney or another legal aid organization, on issues such as domestic violence, family law, immigration, citizenship, employment law, discrimination, racism, and incidents of hate. 

ALLIP was launched in 2002 to provide direct contact between limited English speaking immigrants and legal advocates and receives more than 10,000 calls each year. As the only Asian language legal intake program in Southern California with trained bilingual staff, it is a critical resource for indigent monolingual or limited English speaking immigrants in need of legal assistance.
