Women's Legal Center

The Women's Legal Center was established by Attorney Catherine A. Schwartz. Ms. Schwartz has a passion for helping others - especially women. The Women's Legal Center's mission is to provide affordable legal representation to women who would otherwise be left standing in front of a judge ALONE. Catherine A. Schwartz is that voice a woman needs in court.

Ms. Schwartz has been involved in numerous outreach programs in San Diego and Riverside Counties. Ms. Schwartz grew up in a very poor and dysfunctional environment. She was a single mother most of her adult life. She graduated from law school, with honors, working two jobs and raising two small children on her own. Ms. Schwartz has walked in the same shoes as most she represents. During those tough times, there were a number of significant people who supported and encouraged her. Ms. Schwartz's motivation in establishing the Women's Legal Center is a way to give back or "pay it forward" in the community she lives.

Each case is evaluated on a case by case basis. Reduced attorney and/or paralegal rates may be offered based on the complexity of a case and/or a client's income rate. The Woman's Legal Center also offers paralegal services for those who need assistance with forms and filing of documents.
