"Equal justice under law is not merely a caption on the facade of the Supreme Court building, it is perhaps the most inspiring ideal
of our society. It is one of the ends for which our entire legal system exists...it is fundamental that justice should be the same,
in substance and availability, without regard to economic status."
- Lewis Powell, Jr.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice (ret.)
During his tenure
as President of the American Bar Association
"But more than anything else, we have learned that legal assistance for the poor, when properly provided, is one of the most constructive
ways to help them help themselves."
- President Richard Nixon, 1974
