This year the Bachus & Schanker, LLC Cares Foundation will again host its annual Joy of Giving Benefit to raise funds in support of the Justice and Mercy Legal Aid Clinic (JAMLAC). The event is planned for Friday, November 30, 2012 and will be held at the offices of Bachus & Schanker. Last year's event drew 120 participants, a substantial increase over previous years. For this reason, hopes are high for even stronger support and increased donations for JAMLAC.
A highlight of the festivities will be the opportunity to recognize some of the 2012 recipients of JAMLAC services, which includes those who might otherwise have been unable to arrange legal representation.
Founded in 2006, JAMLAC is a safe and confidential legal resource for individuals and families struggling with poverty who find themselves in need of legal assistance. Utilizing the services of volunteer attorneys, law school students, paralegals and other volunteers from the area, JAMLAC represents the needy of metro Denver in civil and minor criminal matters including family law, bankruptcy, sealing of criminal records, quashing of warrants and other such matters.
JAMLAC is a service of Mile High Ministries, a non-profit organization that has worked to improve the lives of metro Denver's disadvantaged since 1988.
