The Montgomery, Ala., based law firm of Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C., demonstrated a commitment to protecting access to justice by contributing to the Civil Justice Foundation. The Civil Justice Foundation is a national charitable organization dedicated to safeguarding justice for all Americans by strengthening the alliance between trial attorneys and consumer advocacy groups.
“Ensuring access to justice for those who have been legally wronged is very important,” said Tom Methvin, Beasley Allen Managing Shareholder. “This group has been working on this important issue for many years. We are glad we have been able to support them over the years, including our recent $5,000 donation.”
The Civil Justice Foundation was founded in 1986 by members of the American Association for Justice (formerly ATLA) and a group of consumer advocates who believed that all Americans – particularly working families, individual workers, and consumers – deserve unobstructed access to the civil justice system.
The CJF is the only national foundation devoted solely to protecting the individual rights, health and well-being of the injured, providing small but significant grants to groups working to help injured people rebuild their lives or to prevent injuries from occurring. Funds collected by the Foundation from donors go directly to grassroots organizations fighting these battles across the country.
The contribution was made through a fundraising drive spearheaded by Tom Young, who serves on the CJF Board of Trustees, and is founder of InjuryBoard.com, an online community that allows lawyers throughout the country to share information about issues of civil justice and consumer safety with the public. Beasley Allen is a member of Injury Board. IB members raised more than $19,000 for the CJF in 24 hours.
