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."

The Administer Justice team is leading the way in providing legal services to the under resourced in our community. Administer Justice is giving the helpless hope and honoring God as they provide legal services that change lives. People cannot walk into the future with optimism if their present has them engulfed in despair. The legal services provided allow those served to look ahead with unencumbered enthusiasm. I'm proud to support the mission of Administer Justice.

Administer Justice is helping the most vulnerable in our communities who truly have no where else to turn. There are so many people facing civil legal issues that need help and simplty cannot afford an attorney. The elderly are victims of consumer fraud, identity theft is happening everywhere, and single parents are struggling to make ends meet when their child support doesn't arrive. Administer Justice is there to give hope to these individuals and help them navigate our complex legal and government programs. I have never known such a group of dedicated people with big hearts for those in need.
