10 years ago JAMLAC was born out of the simple recognition that many times the legal system doesn’t work for those who are marginalized and victims of oppressive circumstances. From the outset, the lawyers and staff of the Justice and Mercy Legal Aid Clinic have sought to empower their clients in a way that they can positively affect their own lives.
Since starting out as a two-person team serving 68 clients, JAMLAC has grown to serve over 800 clients a year. In addition, through its partnerships with groups like the Christian Legal Society, hundreds more people receive free legal advice at one of 9 legal triage clinics across the Denver Metro area.
2016 marks 10 years of JAMLAC providing transformational legal aid in Denver. Join us in celebrating this milestone and please consider partnering with us in the years to come.
