A record-breaking number of law firms, law-related corporations and partners contributed to the 2015 Chicago Bar Foundation Investing to Justice Campaign. Thanks to the efforts from those involved in addition to the Chicago Bar Foundation, Chicago’s legal community successfully raised more than $11.5 million to support victims in the Chicago area in need of legal assistance.
In an effort to improve access to justice for the elderly, disabled individuals, low-income workers, veterans, children, personal injury victims, or others in difficult situations, over $2 million in grants that will be provided to dozens of pro bono and legal aid organizations was generated as a result from the 2015 Chicago Bar Foundation Investing to Justice Campaign.
Attorney Jared Staver works hard to protect the rights of disadvantaged people and has a genuine commitment to the public interest. In this year’s 2015 Chicago Bar Foundation Investing to Justice Campaign, Staver and his colleagues from Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. went above and beyond to support this year’s campaign — exceeding the 50% requested participation rate among individual attorneys and achieving in an act of exemplary leadership 100% participation.
Their dedication to improving justice initiatives and support for the cause did not go unnoticed.
On June 26, 2015, Executive Vice President and General Counsel of United Airlines and 2015 Investing In Justice Campaign Chair, Brett J. Hart formally thanked Jared Staver and his colleagues for their participation:
“Your generous support of the [2015 Chicago Bar Foundation Investing to Justice Campaign] will have a lasting impact in the lives of many people who otherwise would have little hope of getting the legal help they so urgently need. Together, we once again have shown to the larger community, and to our colleagues across the county, that when Chicago’s legal community is called upon to make a difference, we step up in a big way.”
Success from this year’s 2015 Chicago Bar Foundation Investing to Justice Campaign can make it possible for underprivileged individuals to receive legal assistance when needed. One-hundred percent of the funds generated from this year’s campaign will go towards improving web-based legal services, expanding legal aid hotlines, advice desks and clinics, and improving the breadth of legal representation services available so that everyone can have access to necessary legal help when needed.
