Our Principal Priorities Include

Inspiring Equal Justice

  • One vote, one act or one person can change the course of history "I also thought of the lawyers who daily and tirelessly labor in the vineyards of justice - men and women who represent their clients with integrity, ethics and professionalism, and who think nothing of it as that is what lawyers do. Yet, often these individuals are the very people who change the world.

    Martha W. Barnett

  • Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced

    James Baldwin

  • Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
