Been arrested?

We can help.

The justice system is broken.  We’re here to fix it.

We match pro bono lawyers to those accused of crimes, assist with bail, provide connections to social services, and train socially responsible defense attorneys.

The FLJC wants to get people out of jail and keep them out of the justice system.
