Office records of Akahori Horitsu Jimusho

Scope and Content

In the prewar years, some bilingual Issei who had formal legal training or experiences in handling legal matters in the United States assisted other Issei with their legal affairs. They often opened a horitsu (legal) or tsuyaku jimusho (interpreter’s office) to render such services such as writing business letters, preparing legal documents, acting as court interpreters, and referring court cases to American lawyers. Akahori ran such an establishment in Little Tokyo and Terminal Island, California, from 1924 to 1933. There, he provided legal assistance to numerous individuals in cases such as divorce, traffic accidents, and unpaid wages. A large portion of his clientele came from the fishing industry in Terminal Island. His office also functioned as a collection agency.
