The History of Historic Filipinotown in Los Angeles, CA

Historic Filipinotown grew organically. Many moved there from other ethnic neighborhoods around Los Angeles, such as Little Tokyo. Others were recent immigrants from the Philippines.

When California lifted restrictions on property ownership by Asians and Pacific Islanders in the 1950s, Filipinos bought residential and commercial property between Temple Street and Beverly Boulevard.

Many of the area’s landmarks predate the neighborhood’s 2002 recognition as “Historic Filipinotown.” The Filipino Christian Church was built in 1915, and the St. Columban Filipino Catholic Church was built in 1967.

Today, the neighborhood blends the old and new. It has diverse shops and restaurants with Filipino, Latino, and Asian businesses sitting side by side.

What Does It Cost To Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in Los Angeles County?

California injury lawyers usually charge a contingency fee to handle your case. You pay this fee from your compensation after the lawyer wins or settles your case. This means that you will not pay any legal fees if you lose your case. And since the fees get paid at the end of the case, the lawyer will not require any upfront payments to start your case.

Schedule a free consultation with M&Y Personal Injury Lawyers to discuss your case and the fee for hiring an experienced injury lawyer for your case.

Statute of Limitations in California Personal Injury Cases

California’s statute of limitations only gives you two years after your accident to file a lawsuit for bodily injuries. But California has several exceptions that could pause the statute of limitations. You should discuss your case with M&Y Personal Injury Lawyers to determine the deadlines for your injury case.
