Every single time I appear in family court on a pro bono matter it makes me realize that I lead a very sheltered and comfortable life. The next thought that immediately follows that realization, though, strikes me as the most important to me personally: doing this pro bono work really makes me appreciate the family […]
Why do I support the Combined Campaign for Justice? Because it works. Every dollar given results in real, direct and quantifiable benefits to the community and to the people that DVLS, CLASI, and LCSD can represent as a result of CCJ.
Our world is not perfect, and unfortunately, there are always people who will need our help. I donate funds and time to the Combined Campaign for Justice as one important way to make a positive difference in the lives of those who live in our community.
Supporting CCJ is important to me because there is an overwhelming need for legal aid. CCJ helps gives those who need it most the much-needed help navigating the legal system.
The Combined Campaign for Justice is one of the most vital and impactful fundraising endeavors that we have in Delaware. It truly changes lives. CCJ supports Delaware’s legal aid agencies to ensure that every voice has a chance to be heard, not just those that can afford to hire an attorney. I give to CCJ […]
I am fortunate to practice law in Delaware. I also proudly call Delaware my home. Supporting the CCJ allows unserved members of our community to receive invaluable access to our court system. This access not only helps those who receive the representation to reach their potential, but helps all Delawareans. Our community is stronger when […]
As a Delaware native (almost) and a Delaware attorney since 1986, I have been fortunate to experience the practice of law in an environment I believe is unique to a small state with a close-knit Bar Association. The CCJ provides our legal community the opportunity to both participate in and provide resources for legal services […]
I am honored to serve as a co-chair of the Combined Campaign for Justice. The generosity of CCJ’s donors supports Delaware’s three major civil legal aid organizations in serving our most vulnerable neighbors. The commitment of the lawyers and volunteers of CLASI, DVLS and LSCD is invaluable and inspiring. None of us got to where […]
I give to the Combined Campaign for Justice because it ultimately enables our fellow human beings who are far less fortunate than I am and cannot afford a lawyer to get their day in court and secure essential rights and protections that otherwise would likely be smashed along with their hopes and dreams for the […]
I support the Combined Campaign for Justice because it validates our claim to justice for all. Justice for most is not the same and not adequate.
As Delaware attorneys, we are extremely lucky to be members of one of the top bars in the country and to practice before the nation’s finest judiciary. The Delaware bench and bar has a long tradition of providing access to justice for those less fortunate in our society. I am very proud to follow in […]
It is my pleasure to serve as a Corporate Committee Chair and to donate to CCJ because it is the right thing to do. I thank God that we have so many people who are passionate about and willing to give tirelessly of their time to this great cause. “Human progress is neither automatic nor […]
I donate to the Combined Campaign for Justice because I watch the volunteer legal services attorneys the CCJ supports in action in Family Court representing victims of domestic violence to obtain life-saving protection from abuse orders. These attorneys are professional, compassionate and perform invaluable legal services to people in our community who need help to […]
Parcels has been fortunate to play an important role in the Delaware legal process since 1980. In that time, we’ve had the opportunity to serve the community in a variety of ways. By donating our time, money and resources to the Combined Campaign for Justice, we have been able to help raise the much needed […]
Both in my role as a court reporter and reporting firm owner dating back to the late 1970’s, I have been very fortunate to have the honor and privilege to serve and work with the Delaware legal community. My desire to give back and support the mission of the Delaware Bar lead me to get […]
Many have said society is judged by how we treat the “least” among us. I give to CCJ financially and with my time because the three agencies supported by CCJ help those who have less. Delaware’s impoverished and disabled citizens have legal needs, often more so than citizens not in those categories, but have no […]
I support CCJ because together with the privilege we have in practicing in this great State comes the obligation to ensure that the neediest among us have access to justice, including in the form of pro bono legal representation. CCJ is unparalleled in its ability to efficiently and cooperatively funnel those resources to services for […]
It was a privilege to serve as a Co-Chair of the Combined Campaign for Justice. The Campaign is needed now more than ever, when so many poor Delawareans have unmet legal needs and the talented legal professionals of DVLS, CLASI, and Legal Services Corporation of Delaware face continued funding cuts. Every dollar contributed makes a […]
I am committed to the Combined Campaign for Justice because I believe it is the duty of every citizen to assure that the most vulnerable members of our communities — children, veterans, the poor, the disabled, the elderly and victims of domestic violence– have access to justice, whether that is in the courts or dealing […]
DLS Discovery carries out our mission to support our communities where our employees live and work. By supporting the CCJ we are able to help those in need of legal representation that can’t afford an attorney. CCJ’s proven track record of preventing 97% of evictions they handled speaks for itself.
I support the Combined Campaign for Justice because I believe that the provision of legal services for the poor is a unique professional obligation of members of the Bar. Moreover, CCJ, the special cooperative effort of the three Delaware organizations that provide indigent legal services, is a gem of an idea and the envy of […]
I started my legal career in public service. Although my practice no longer focuses in that area, and I love my private sector corporate litigation practice, I continue to believe it is important to remember those in our community in need of legal services. I feel that through my involvement with CCJ, I am able […]
I give to CCJ because it is the best way that I know directly to help people in need obtain legal representation to protect their basic civil rights. I also give as a way to show my gratitude for my fellow bar members who work at CLASI, DVLS and LSCD. Their commitment is inspiring and […]
No group benefits as much as lawyers from the centrality of law to American life, so we are all obligated to make the benefits of law available to people who cannot otherwise afford them. There is no easier way to do that than through a check to the Combined Campaign.
I give both my time and financial resources to the Combined Campaign for Justice because it has always been engrained in me that being a Delaware Lawyer is far more just having a successful law practice; it’s giving back to the Bar and to the community in which we live and call home. I take […]
Early mentors instilled the importance of the Campaign and I contributed regularly over years without giving it much thought. But when I served as a co-chair, I witnessed first-hand the dedication of our agency attorneys and the incredible work they were doing for those less fortunate (who often have nowhere else to turn for help); […]
I feel very fortunate to have been able to practice corporate law in Delaware—the practice is unmatched elsewhere. While I have devoted time to pro bono causes and clients, I have this nagging feeling that I could have and should have done more. By giving time and money to CCJ, I know that I am, […]
Giving to the Combined Campaign is, simply put, what we do in Delaware. It’s the right thing to do.
CCJ is such an integral part of the Delaware legal community. My wife and I are longtime supporters of the CCJ because of the absolutely vital assistance that CCJ provides for legal services to those in need in Delaware. I feel lucky and honored every day to practice law as a member of one of […]
