People’s Justice Project, Inc.

Want to join me in making a difference by advancing Criminal Justice reform in Santa Barbara County? 

People's Justice Project (“PJP”) is a non-profit law firm that protects the civil rights, liberties and dignity of all Santa Barbara County residents through the provision of high-quality legal and social services, including (1) civil rights litigation, (2) screening for U.S. citizenship eligibility, applying for U.S. citizenship, and other immigration law services, and (3) criminal defense litigation, including post-conviction services. PJP fills the justice gap by connecting low and moderate income community members with affordable legal representation. Due to PJP’s 501(c)(3) non-profit organization status, PJP attorneys are able to provide legal representation at a lower rate than most private firms and have more time to devote to your needs than most public defender or legal aid offices. Most of PJP’s clients are indigent or unhoused, and receive legal representation at no cost. For more information, please visit:
