About Us
The LAWRS Foundation, Inc. which stands for "Legal Advocacy and Writ Resources," is a legal advocacy organization that provides training and certification for individuals to become "Legal Navigators." Individuals who are legal navigators serve as courtroom advocates and participate in a variety of duties. This includes assisting pro se litigants, case intake, document preparation and filing, attorney referrals, accompany litigants during critical stages of court proceedings, and other responsibilities as a continuum of legal advocacy services. Areas in which legal navigators will be trained to assist in are 1) housing, 2) debtor/creditor relief, 3) child support, and 4) family law. Studies have shown that access to assistance offers a better life chance opportunities for individuals facing a crisis, instead of simply the merits of the case.
