Private bar contributions to Legal Aid break record

With Maryland Legal Aid’s 100th birthday right around the corner, the Equal Justice Council concluded a record-breaking 2010 annual giving campaign.

“We’re looking to build on that for Legal Aid’s centennial in 2011,” said EJC co-chair Benjamin Rosenberg. The E JC, the fundraising arm of Legal Aid, consists of private attorneys who personally contacted law firms in Maryland to enlist their support.

The outstanding individuals and firms who were part of the campaign will be honored at the 14th Annual EJC Recognition Breakfast on May 25.

Legal Aid, a private nonprofit law firm, is the largest provider of free civil legal help to low-income Marylanders, the elderly, and abused and neglected children, with 13 offices around the state.
