Advisory Councils

The Legal Aid Justice Center receives support, guidance and perspective from distinguished groups of individuals in each of the three regions we serve. These groups include local attorneys, past Legal Aid lawyers, and civic leaders who help us with fundraising and event planning. From time to time, we also form ad hoc committees to assist with major efforts in our growth as an organization.
