WE ARE THE CAMPAIGN
Since 2000, the Campaign for Legal Services has brought together New Hampshire’s business, legal and philanthropic communities to support the Legal Advice & Referral Center and New Hampshire Legal Assistance.
Through personal outreach and annual initiatives, the Campaign promotes awareness of civil legal aid’s impact on New Hampshire’s society and economy and raises private contributions so LARC and NHLA advocates can spend their time protecting the rights of the state’s most vulnerable residents.
JAMES A. FITTS
CFP(c), Harvest Capital, Concord
“Everyone believes in equal justice but access to justice is not equal in New Hampshire. Basic human dignity demands that, regardless of income or circumstance, laws be equally applied to all. I support the Campaign for Legal Services so the homeless, the abused, the veterans and the elderly all have the same access to our justice system that I do.”
ABIGAIL SYKAS KAROUTAS
Principal, Sykas Law Office, Dover
“Life’s complicated. It doesn’t take very much to cause a total crisis, and if you can’t afford a lawyer you’re in a real spot. There’s a real need for legal aid to ensure the justice system is accessible for all. I support the Campaign because it’s a way for me to give back that doesn’t involve me going to court or stepping outside my practice area.”
Family law attorney, LARC
“At LARC we have the ability to talk directly to the clients, to follow the cases through and see the results of our advice. It doesn’t always work out the way we would hope, but in many cases, the advice does improve the client’s legal position. These are real issues that affect people at a very basic level. The Campaign helps LARC do more for people in New Hampshire. It’s money well spent.”
Assistant Controller, NHLA
“When I joined NHLA 13 years ago, my eyes were opened to the plight of people without a voice. There are so many who require free legal representation to lift them up from grim circumstances. It’s a good feeling to know that my gifts to The Campaign can make a tangible difference in someone’s life.”
