Bet Tzedek Legal Services is a nonprofit company headquartered in Los Angeles, CA. The firm provides legal advisory services. Diego Cartagena is the current CEO, occupying that position since 2012.The company says this about itself: In 1974, a small group of lawyers, rabbis, and community activists came together to assist aging, low-income residents who were being displaced from their homes as their neighborhoods gentrified. The group individually contributed $5 per month to rent a small storefront where, one night a week, they offered free legal assistance to the community. They named the organization Bet Tzedek – Hebrew for \"House of Justice\" – after a central precept of Jewish law and tradition: \"Tzedek, tzedek, tirdof\" – \"Justice, justice you shall pursue.\"
