WE ARE THE CAMPAIGN
Since 2000, the Campaign for Legal Services has brought together New Hampshire’s business, legal and philanthropic communities to support access to justice in civil, non-criminal cases.
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 the staff and volunteers can spend their time protecting the rights of the state’s most vulnerable residents.
ORVILLE “BUD” FITCH
Staff Attorney, New Hampshire School Board Association
“When I was State Director with Sen. Ayotte’s office, we received many constituent calls from people with civil legal issues. We found tremendous value in knowing we could refer them to legal aid for advice on how the courts work, what the laws are and how to obtain legal assistance or represent themselves. Legal aid was a way for us to be sure they had access to justice.”
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.”
MARTY VAN OOT
Principal, Jackson Lewis
“The Campaign is one of the best ways for attorneys and businesses to level the playing field of our civil justice system. Victims of domestic violence, families dealing with threats or neglect from absentee landlords, and children, seniors, and veterans who are denied access to health care or benefits – they deserve access to the same quality of justice as people with power and money. Each of us can make a difference in the lives of the underserved in New Hampshire. Please give what you can– and more.”
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.”
