Private legal representation in the United States is an exorbitant cost, which makes access to justice a privilege for the very wealthy. Civil Legal Aid Providers, Public Defenders and Public Interest Law Firms are independent legal service providers who do their best to provide access to justice to low- and middle-income Americans. Despite the substantial, well-documented positive social return that investing in these advocates produces, government funding has always been, and remains, grossly inadequate to meet the large demand for their services.
Using open-source software, we have created a free crowdfunding platform for Civil Legal Aid Providers, Public Defenders and Public Interest Law Firms to get the funding they need.
Our vision is of a society where access to adequate legal counsel is available for every person, regardless of how much money they have.
Together, we can grow the supply of justice.
