Texas Access To Justice Commission Update

Texas Access to Justice Commission Recognizes Champions of Justice Law Firms
2012 Campaign Raises almost $1 Million for Texas Legal Aid

          The ATJ Campaign involved law firms in each of the four largest cities in Texas – Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. Attorneys were encouraged to make the suggested $150 Access to Justice Contribution on their State Bar of Texas dues statement. Winning firms were selected based on two criteria -- the highest percentage of contributing attorneys within their firm as well as those firms with the highest overall contribution. Firms were divided within the four cities based on number of attorneys – large, mid-sized or small firm.

          The Commission will be presenting awards to the winning firms at a Supreme Court Luncheon on October 22 at the Omni Hotel in Austin.  Further, a full-page ad on the inside back cover of the September issue of the Texas Bar Journal congratulated all Champion of Justice Law Firms.

         Overall the campaign raised almost $1 million for Legal Aid in Texas. The Commission applauds the efforts of these firms as well as all lawyers who supported this campaign.  With over six million people qualifying for legal aid and legal services providers facing layoffs in the face of reduced funding, the support by Texas lawyers is needed now more than ever.
