Third Annual Fresh Start Gala

The 2018 Fresh Start Gala will be held on February 22, 2018 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the offices of Porter Wright Morris & Arthur. The Gala will feature an online auction, great appetizers provided by The Refectory, beer, wine, soft drinks – and, most importantly, the opportunity to mingle with your friends and colleagues, and learn more about LASC and the services it offers. All proceeds will benefit LASC's Pro Bono Bankruptcy Program. 

The Pro Bono Bankruptcy Program and the Bankruptcy By-Pass Clinic began in 2012 at the suggestion of Judge John Hoffman. Under the direction of LASC, these programs – with the help of volunteer attorneys – provide individuals and families facing economic hardships with access to the bankruptcy system and, as a result, a “Fresh Start”, without the worry of overwhelming debt obligations. LASC’s pro bono attorneys also have helped prevent utility shut-offs, stop wage garnishments, reinstate drivers’ licenses, and provide much needed relief from creditor calls for elderly and disabled individuals.

NEW Online Auction

Starting on February 15, 2018, LASC will be auctioning off a number of fun and unique items to bid on to raise money to support our Pro Bono Bankruptcy Program. Stay tuned for more information about how to get a head start on bidding and our new
