Ontra's commitment to close the justice gap

Accessing the legal system can be a complex and expensive process. Many underprivileged members of our communities are systematically disadvantaged because they don’t have access to legal representation.

Ontra’s Dollar a Document program supports vetted, nonprofit legal aid organizations affiliated with the Legal Services Corporation (LSC). These nonprofits work with members of underserved communities to address issues such as domestic violence, employment discrimination, opioid addiction, veterans justice, disaster recovery, and much more.

Luis, a U.S. Navy veteran, was denied his Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits for nearly a decade. LAFLA provided Luis with the free, high-quality legal services he needed to fight for the benefits he deserved.

“I’m really, really grateful for this foundation. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. My family thanks you, too.” - Luis

Legal Services of Greater Miami

Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP)
