Access to Justice Member Community
Message from Committee Chair John Gilligan
Welcome to your Member Community for the Access to Justice Committee. First, let me congratulate and thank our past Chair, Tom Bonasera, of Dinsmore & Shohl, LLP, for his leadership and service rendered for the benefit of all of us. Thank you, Tom.
Our goal for this community is two-fold: 1) to offer this online resource to help us all communicate with each other and 2) to promote and encourage the funding for programs, services, and entities that provide access to justice, especially for those who cannot afford to hire a lawyer. The current civil legal needs of the poor and the working poor are at an all-time high at the same time funding is at an all-time low.
If you have questions about the committee or ideas for how we, together, can improve Access to Justice for all, I hope to hear from you. Many of you may also expect to hear from me directly as I may be calling you reaching out to ask for your ideas and assistance as we move forward. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
Thank you and I look forward to working with you.
