Albany, New York (PRWEB) May 27, 2006 –-
Attorney Paul Harding of Martin, Harding and Mazzotti is appointed to The Legal Project’s Honorary Board of Directors. The Legal Project is a private, not-for-profit organization that was founded by the Capital District Women's Bar Association in 1995. It provides a variety of free and low cost legal services to the working poor, victims of domestic violence and other underserved individuals in the Capital District of New York State.
The Legal Project believes that all people, regardless of income, gender, disability, race, religion, age, sexual orientation or ethnicity should have access to legal services. This belief reflects a deep commitment to fairness and equal justice under the law.
Based upon these beliefs, the mission of The Legal Project is to make the law more accessible to those in need, to increase the legal community's involvement in pro bono work and to serve as a resource for legal issues. They have a special commitment to women and others who may have difficulty in obtaining legal assistance.
Paul Harding, managing partner of Martin, Harding and Mazzotti states that “being able to sit on the board of an organization such as this one is an honor for me and my firm. The law needs to be accessible to everyone. If every member of our society can not afford the legal services they need, then we all must do whatever we can to make those services available.”
Harding continues, “I am particularly proud of the Project’s not-for profit work that brings legal services to victims of domestic violence and their inclusive practices, not leaving behind any group or segment of our society in need.”
“Mine and the Project’s beliefs both reflect a deep commitment to fairness and equal justice under the law. I am very proud to be able to support the Capital District Women’s Bar Association in this work.”
Recently, Martin, Harding and Mazzotti helped host the Project’s Domestic Violence Legal Training Coalition held on March 31, 2006. This program relies on more than seventy attorneys to help respond to the more than 600 family offense matters that the Project assists with, annually.
