Arrowood LLP Attorneys “Walk to the Hill” in Support of Civil Legal Aid

 

Arrowood LLP attorneys participated today in the Equal Justice Coalition’s “Walk to the Hill for Civil Legal Aid.”  The 17th annual event brought together Lisa Arrowood, Elizabeth Kayatta, and more than 600 other attorneys from across Massachusetts to lobby the state legislature for increased civil legal aid funding.

 

Lisa Arrowood, President of the Boston Bar Association, was one of the speakers featured at the event.  Lisa encouraged her fellow attendees to educate their elected representatives about the findings of the BBA’s Statewide Task Force to Expand Civil Legal Aid in Massachusetts.  The Task Force found that increasing state funding to civil legal aid ends up saving Massachusetts money, while increasing the flow of federal benefits to local residents.  As Lisa explained, “funding legal aid makes sound business sense for the Commonwealth.”
