These are dedicated people who really care about helping those who need legal advice.
Most folks have tough times in their lives. I was no different, except along the way, I got some help and some opportunities. Administer Justice helps people having a tough time and gives them options, encouragement, moral and legal support to get through those tough times. If more of us were willing to give just a little of our time to help others, just think of all the good that could be done in this world. Three or four hours a month could make a big difference in someone's life.
My first experience with Administer Justice was when I needed them as a client. I was devastated and in need of counsel. I was met with encouragement and prayer. I am so grateful and so aware of what they gave to me. Godly counsel, prayer and legal expertise were all given with kindness and care. Now, many years later, I LOVE serving on the Board of Administer Justice. Knowing that I play a part--even a small part-- in what they do is such a blessing to me. I know my life was changed and now I get to see others impacted positively as well. This is truly an organization that honors God and cares about those in need.
My husband and I were on staff at a local church when we first became acquainted with Administer Justice. We have been avid supporters ever since. Years passed and retirement came. Less money to support with, of course, but still it is our desire to do so. Unannounced, a situation arose with the IRS which caused us rapid palpitations and cold sweat! We immediately made an appointment with one of the tax attorneys at Administer Justice. She led us through the process like the pro she is, and managed to comfort us while she helped us to settle in a very satisfactory manner. As supporters, we were treated with love and respect; as recipients, we were treated the very same way! Our appreciation and support will remain with Administer Justice always.
As I work in Marketing and Social Media, I see how fashionable it has become for my generation to have pet causes on their Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn pages. But few of these causes have the long term positive impact and measurable transformative experiences that Administer Justice has on their client's lives. Administer Justice's care and thought into each individual goes beyond legal boundaries, or how best to help them. It addresses God's mission to care for one another, give assistance to those who cannot help themselves and brings us all closer in the process. Administer Justice transforms you into a better volunteer, a more impactful donor, a more thankful person, and a keeper of God's mission.
As a volunteer attorney, I found Administer Justice a great organization. Not only do they have the typical business hours, but they also provide great services to the surrounding community through frequent Saturday morning clinics. With my busy weekday schedule, this provided a great opportunity to help give back to an under-served population that also suffers from time conflicts. Furthermore, Administer Justice improves its volunteers by providing significant training services so they can give the best service possible. Because of this training, I felt empowered to take on several pro bono clients through Administer Justice who needed an additional hand with the court system.
For 3 years as a volunteer bookkeeper for this God-inspired organization, I have witnessed a real heart for serving people without hope. People have been rescued from dire situations in which where they had no place to turn. They have been prayed with and heard the beautiful gospel message of Jesus Christ. Since my initial involvement, I have seen God multiply the territory and efforts of this faithful group of individuals who sacrifice much!
I love Administer Justice! A team of dedicated volunteer attorneys meet with and represent improvrished clients. I have witnessed homes saved, child support collected, adoptions finalized, fraud detected, stolen identities retored, and so much more. Much of the work done by Administer Justice is aimed at educating and empowering individuals so they can successfully navigate the legal system. We need more organizations like this one!
This organization provides a critical service to a very under served population. The poor simply cannot get civil representation or legal counsel the way that wealthier people can. Therefore, their legal situations can be very hopeless. Administer Justice makes the true the phrase "liberty and justice for all."
I work for Moody Publishers, the publisher of Administer Justices' book Gospel Justice by Founder Bruce Strom. There are scores of non-profits with stories worthy to be told, but AJ under Bruce's leadership was a story we felt was unique, impactful and authentic. We immediately got excited about it!
AJ as a volunteer legal organization is "wise as serpents" but also "gentle as doves". They are sharp legal professional, some of the best in their field, with pastoral hearts for those caught in the trap of legal injustice. I appreciate this greatly about them.
AJ has story after story of people and families in legal binds often caused by the injustice of others. The way they not only provide legal counsel and representation, but also spiritual guidance and encouragement to those who need it is inspiring.
Little did I know that I would get to know their work firsthand. When a situation came up in our extended family that was more than we could handle, I suggested AJ. Their team quickly came to the aid of this family member and gave needed advice and legal counsel to help make some tough decisions in a short period of time.
My respect for AJ increased all the more.
I HIGHLY recommend this organization for those facing legal injustice. They are truly "Good Samaritans" here on this earth who give help and hope to strangers on the road of life.
In my humble opinion they are some of the best examples of what it means to be the "hands and feet" of Jesus in a broken and dying world.
