HLGR Helps CEJ Reduce Domestic Violence

Studies have shown that the greatest single factor in reducing domestic violence in a community is the presence of a legal aid office. The Lawyers’ Campaign for Equal Justice (CEJ) raises funds for legal aid services and volunteer lawyers to the poor. The CEJ recently recognized HLGR, along with several other law firms, as a “Defender of Justice” for contributing between $500-$999 per lawyer in 2012. Susan Marmaduke, HLGR shareholder and long-time CEJ supporter, said, “We have an individual and firm-wide commitment to the CEJ. It is a privilege to be able to support those who regularly provide legal services to the poor and who tirelessly advocate for access to justice for all Oregonians.”
