Who We Are: Overview
Legal Aid's staff attorneys are lawyers committed to serving low income persons and children in Jefferson County. They are familiar with the legal issues faced by impoverished citizens in the various courts where Legal Aid serves. Some are seasoned practitioners who have come from success in private practice, some are new lawyers seeking to serve the public interest through their work, and some have served the poor through Legal Aid for their entire careers. All have chosen to work in an area of the law where remuneration and financial success are a lesser goal than that of serving their profession and the public through quality representation of the indigent, including children.
