Equal Justice

Filed under: Homes — lessie @ 5:24 pm

Boring photo, I know — but but but! I had no idea until I walked by this house that Anderson had a branch of the S.C. Centers for Equal Justice. I was really surprised. It wasn’t until I went to work for an attorney that I realized how difficult it can be to get divorced, fight for custody, obtain child support from a deliquent payer — not to mention defend oneself in a lawsuit — if a person doesn’t have funds to retain a lawyer. And needless to say, attorney services are expensive. Well worth it, if you have a good attorney, but still out of reach for many. I’m proud Anderson has a branch of this equal justice program, but based on my experience with centers in other cities, the branches are funded to provide only a token amount of help compared to what is needed by those without means. A close-up picture of the house is here. It has some interesting architectural details.

  1. You are right, of course, but this might be better than nothing. At least they can get some legal advice — I am guessing. It would seem to me that a law firm in your city could set aside the whole staff for things like this once a month. I suppose a lot of the reason why most don’t is still greed. Love of money. Don’t give anything away. It is the American way these days. The neighborhood went to pot when they did away with the front porches.
