Richard Rothschild

Director of Litigation

Almost every landmark California case in the last four decades, defending or expanding the rights of low-income families and individuals, has the mark of Richard Rothschild, our Director of Litigation. He is the “go-to” expert, whose opinion and guidance is sought by hundreds of legal aid attorneys, particularly those facing seemingly intractable litigation problems. Dick has received the highest public interest/legal aid accolades at the national, state and county level: the LA County Bar’s Shattuck Price Award; the State Bar’s Loren Miller Award; and the National Legal Aid and Defenders Association Kutak-Dodds Prize.
