IELLA is a non-profit legal service provider whose mission is to provide free legal services for the poor and underprivileged residents of the Inland Empire via its volunteer attorneys and staff. All of the services are rendered free of charge in an effort to ease the financial burden of the already disenfranchised individuals.
The founders wanted to make legal services available, because too many people could not afford to hire an attorney, or were not able to speak English,or could not read or write.
With the help of United Way, Legal Service Corporation through Inland Counties Legal Services, and the State Bar, IELLA is able to provide legal help for those who cannot hire private attorneys because of limited financial resources and language barriers which may include illiteracy.
IELLA strives to assist with limited-civil and family law cases.
