TEXAS ACCESS TO JUSTICE COMMISSION RECOGNIZES BEIRNE MAYNARD & PARSONS AS A "CHAMPION OF JUSTICE" LAW FIRM
2013 Campaign Raises More Than $1 Million for Texas Legal Aid
The Texas Access to Justice Commission is delighted to announce the winning law firms in its second annual Access to Justice (ATJ) Campaign.
The ATJ Law Firm Campaign involved more than 120 firms throughout Texas. Attorneys were encouraged to make the suggested $150 Access to Justice Contribution on their State Bar of Texas dues statement. Winning firms were selected in two categories: highest overall contribution and the percentage of attorneys within the firm that contributed.
Beirne Maynard & Parsons received an award for the highest percentage of participation (100%).
This year the ATJ campaign raised more than $1 million for legal aid. Nearly six million people qualify for civil legal aid in Texas, but due to a lack of resources only 20-25% of their legal needs can be met. Civil legal aid helps those with critical legal issues, like spouses and children of domestic abuse, elderly citizens who have been denied life-sustaining prescriptions, veterans who are not able to receive critical medical benefits, and families whose homes are facing wrongful foreclosure.
The civil legal aid system needs support now more than ever. To learn more about the Access to Justice Campaign or to donate, visit www.texasatj.org/donate.
