FEATURED EDITORIAL: The Women’s Legal Center – Affordable Legal representation for women

The Women’s Legal Center was established by Attorney Catherine A. Schwartz in February of 2011. 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. Catherine A. Schwartz was a single mother for 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. In addition, Ms. Schwartz has been involved in numerous outreach programs in Riverside County.
Each case is evaluated on a case by case basis. The Woman’s Legal Center also offers paralegal services for those who need assistance with forms and the filing of documents. They are committed to helping women and defending their rights. Contact The Women’s Legal Center today for a free consultation. Areas of practice include criminal defense, family law, divorce, child custody, child support and spousal support issues, paternity, DCSS matters, restraining orders, domestic violence, and more.
