Providing pro bono representation increases access to justice

Providing pro bono representation increases access to justice Pro bono attorneys help bridge the "access to justice" gap, which is growing in our region. LASP extends a special thanks to pro bono attorneys for supporting access to justice throughout the year for economically disadvantaged residents of Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties. Probono.net notes, "The need for legal services among the poor is overwhelming. According to an American Bar Association study, at least 40% of low and moderate-income households experience a legal problem each year. Yet studies show that the collective civil legal aid effort is meeting only about 20% of the legal needs of low-income people."
