Our Principal Priorities Include

Inspiring Equal Justice

  • The first duty of society is justice

    Alexander Hamilton

  • There can be no equal justice where the kind of trial a man gets depends on the amount of money he has

    Justice Hugo Black

  • How can it be, in a country as strong and rich as this one, that tens of thousands of Americans who need legal representation are turned away every year because their government won't support the very program designed to help them?

    Senator Ron Wyden
