Green Justice is a group of independent public interest lawyers coming together to provide accessible legal support on various social justice issues and train future competent, ethical effective attorneys.
We will take some cases pro bono and use funds we've received through donations, grants or settlements, and some cases "low bono" - at an affordable rate for clients who meet specific financial requirements. Green Justice is designed to fill the gap for those unable to pay regular legal costs, but for whatever reason also cannot access pro bono assistance.
