Campaign for Equal Justice

The annual Campaign for Equal Justice helps to provide necessary funds to MALS.  The legal community supports this vital fundraising effort as do area corporations, foundations, and concerned citizens.

Memphis Area Legal Services, Inc. turns potential tragedies into justice for those who can’t afford legal services but its resources are insufficient to meet the overwhelming legal needs of those who qualify for services. This is why we need your help.  Read about some of our client stories.
