Champions of Justice Gala Benefiting Veterans


On May 13, 2014, the Texas Access to Justice Commission, with its co-sponsor, the State Bar of Texas, will host its annual Champions of Justice Gala Benefiting Veterans. The State Bar of Texas has  graciously agreed to underwrite this worthwhile event so that 100 percent of all proceeds will be dedicated again solely to programs providing civil legal services to Veterans and will be distributed through the Texas Access to Justice Foundation.

Last year, your generous support made it possible to raise more than $341,000. As a result, the Foundation issued eleven grants to organizations that provide services to veterans. These services assist in addressing legal issues related to marital problems, difficulties in getting medical or disability benefits, wrongful foreclosures, and other situations that may arise due to a veteran’s absence during military service.
