2014 Partners in Justice – Ambassadors for Legal Aid


“Partners in Justice” are those who serve as Legal Aid ambassadors to their law firms and corporate counsel departments. This year, more than 40 organizations are participating.

Because of the volunteer effort from Partners in Justice, Legal Aid can help more people. Legal Aid’s clients are low income people who are confronted with a legal problem that – if left unresolved – will result in loss of housing, education, income, food, safety or family stability. The problems they face are life problems that have a legal resolution. These clients have legal rights, but, without an attorney, those rights will not be enforced. At Legal Aid, we use the power of the law to help those who are poor and vulnerable.
