Our Principal Priorities Include

Inspiring Equal Justice

  • Without equal access to the law, the system not only robs the poor of their only protection, but it places it in the hands of their oppressors the most powerful and ruthless weapon ever created

    Reginald Heber Smith

  • Justice will not come until those who are not injured are as indignant as those who are injured

    Thucydides

  • The whole idea of equal justice under law means that you've got to play by the rules. It has nothing to do with the underlying subject matter. You just tell the truth.
