VLJ stands up for justice, and New Jersey’s legal community proved their commitment to ensuring that access to justice is available to all with their support of VLJ’s JUST ONE campaign. Through the generous contributions of individual attorneys and legal staff and led by Gibbons P.C. and McCarter & English LLP, VLJ’s 2017 JUST ONE campaign raised over $21,000 to assist low-income New Jersey residents with their civil legal needs.
Everyday VLJ staff members make the connection between low-income people needing legal assistance and lawyers who want to help, but may not have the legal expertise in the fields of greatest need. A cornerstone of VLJ’s service is the training and support that is provided to volunteers; this support gets our volunteers on the road to taking cases and changing lives. But VLJ can’t do this work without the generosity of our volunteers AND our donors, as their financial support funds the tremendously talented VLJ staff.
VLJ would like to give special THANKS to our top two donating law offices, Gibbons P.C. and McCarter & English LLP. Both firms have been longstanding supporters of VLJ, but special recognition goes out to all of the lawyers and staff in those offices who reached into their own wallets and supported VLJ.
