And Justice For All
And Justice for All (AJFA) is a nonprofit created in 1998 by Utah’s primary providers of civil legal services – Disability Law Center, Legal Aid Society of Salt Lake and Utah Legal Services. Despite having differing missions, these three agencies shared a common vision of creating equal access to our system of justice in Utah.
By joining forces, they provide a stable and consistent source of legal services for those who cannot afford legal representation because of disability, poverty, age, migrant status, or race. They moved into a shared building and have become the place for pro-bono legal services for those most in need. Their work later expanded to include a grants program providing funding for other nonprofit legal assistance agencies in Utah who ensure that every citizen has access to the courts system.
Today, And Justice for All serves those most in need – impoverished citizens, people living with disabilities, military veterans, and victims of domestic abuse. Utah Legal Services is where Jane started her legal career. Jane and Tami’s commitment to legal services for the underserved guides their giving and involvement in AJFA. They are proud to support AJFA’s innovating programs leveraging technology, pro bono attorneys, and increasing organizational capacity growing the number of individuals who receive in-court legal advice and representation, including document clinics and e-learning modules for rural clients, and programs that investigate financial abuse of people with disabilities.
