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!

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.
