SLO Legal Assistance Foundation Names Baltodano & Baltodano LLP the 2017 Access to Justice Advocate Award Recipient

San Luis Obispo Legal Assistance Foundation (SLOLAF) has recognized Baltodano & Baltodano LLP as its 2017 Access to Justice Advocate award recipient.  SLOLAF relies on community support to fulfill its mission to deliver affordable legal services.  In a recent announcement, SLOLAF expressed gratitude for the generous support of Baltodano & Baltodano LLP.

As SLOLAF noted, “Since 2011, Baltodano & Baltodano LLP has been a shining example of what it means to support access to justice. One of the firm’s core values is that everyone should, and must, have access to our nation’s system of justice and information regarding current employment rights and responsibilities.  To that end, nearly all Baltodano &  Baltodano LLP cases are handled on a contingency basis, which ensures quality legal representation for individuals who would otherwise be unable to afford an attorney.  In addition, since 2011, Baltodano & Baltodano LLP has made considerable donations to numerous local and state-wide charitable organizations and causes, including SLOLAF.”

SLOLAF develops programs in San Luis Obispo county that provide and promote free legal-aid services, assistance in self-representation, and conflict resolution for low and moderate-income individuals.  SLOLAF is currently serving seniors and veterans, but it has plans to eventually provide family law services too.  Baltodano & Baltodano LLP Managing Partner, Erica Flores Baltodano, recently joined the Board of Directors of SLOLAF, bringing to bear a career of social justice advocacy and extensive experience with legal non-profit management.

SLOLAF said “Baltodano & Baltodano LLP will be presented with the Access to Justice Advocate award at SLOLAF’s 4th Annual Fundraiser, Havana Nights, taking place September 9, 2017, in San Luis Obispo.”

“All of us at Baltodano & Baltodano LLP are touched to be named the recipient of SLOLAF’s Access to Justice Award. It is a distinction given to some of our community’s greatest legal advocates, so it is quite an honor.  It has been a privilege to support the great work of SLOLAF and it is our sincere hope others will support SLOLAF as well,” said Ms. Baltodano.

One way others can support access to justice in San Luis Obispo County is by purchasing journal ads, tables, or individual tickets to attend Havana Nights or by visiting www.slolaf.org to make an online tax-deductible donation to SLOLAF.  Contact SLOLAF Executive Director Stephanie Barclay (stephanie@slolaf.org) to purchase ads or tickets for Havana Nights.
