2019 Access to Justice Advocate



San Luis Obispo Legal Assistance Foundation (SLOLAF), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving SLO County residents for over 25 years, is pleased to announce Frederick Law Firm as its 2019 Access to Justice Advocate award recipient.  “SLOLAF relies on community support to fulfill its mission to deliver affordable legal services, and is grateful for the generous support of Frederick Law Firm and its founding member Jacqueline Frederick.  We are looking forward to honoring Frederick Law Firm at our 6th annual fundraiser on September 21,” SLOLAF’s Executive Director, Donna Jones, said. 

“For decades, SLOLAF has been an important resource for our county’s most vulnerable residents and my firm is proud to support SLOLAF’s efforts in meeting the legal needs of those unable to afford legal help,” said Jacqueline Frederick. “I have personally supported the organization for years, both volunteering my time and contributing financially to their important work.  We are honored to receive this recognition.”

Founded in 1992 by local attorneys to ensure access to justice for underserved residents of SLO County, SLOLAF has steadily grown to meet increasing need and now runs Senior Legal Services Project, the Family Law Advice Clinic and the Veterans Assistance Program. SLOLAF is able to provide its services through grants received from the California State Bar, Area Agency on Aging, the City and County of San Luis Obispo, and through partnerships with Stand Strong and CAPSLO. Importantly, it is the support of members of the legal community and other generous donors who have contributed to the continued growth of SLOLAF’s ability to provide services.

Located in Nipomo, the Frederick Law Firm specializes in personal injury but also serves their clients’ real estate, criminal law, wrongful death, agricultural law and other legal needs. Firm founder, Jacqueline Vitti Frederick, is a forceful advocate and well-known for her volunteerism and charity work throughout San Luis Obispo County.
