Access to Justice Committee



To encourage lawyers to participate in local volunteer attorney and judicare programs, and to support statewide programs providing civil legal assistance to people who would otherwise be unable to afford it.

We are always looking for new members who have an interest in serving the disadvantaged. We are especially interested in new members who can bring diversity and a variety of experiences to the committee.
