Campaign For Equal Access to Justice
In today’s economy, the need for legal aid for the poor is great, while available resources are limited. The Campaign for Equal Access to Justice is asking area residents for the first time to contribute to this necessary effort. By donating just $1,275, you can help 10 families.
Only in criminal cases does the government provide legal counsel to the indigent. Through the Campaign for Equal Access to Justice, local lawyers support the operations of the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program (DVAP), which provides civil legal services. Dallas-area attorneys also provide almost $4 million in pro bono legal work, shouldering the load of gaining access to the courts for people who can’t get justice otherwise.
Donors receive numerous benefits and are recognized in a variety of mediums (D Magazine, Dallas Morning News, Texas Lawyer, Headnotes, press releases, DBA e-newsletter, websites, at the DBA Inaugural and more).
