A bit more about the remarkable accomplishment’s of New Haven Legal Assistance

After reading the post about New Haven Legal Assistance Pat Kaplan, Executive Director of New Haven Legal Assistance, kindly sent the following email:

Thanks for the entry about us on your blog. However, you skipped over 44 years in a blink of an eye and left out Boddie vs. CT, a US Supreme Court case establishing the right of low-income folks to get divorces without paying filing fees as well as many other victories for access to justice!!! Also, of note is that there are 15 judges/magistrates sitting on the bench either here or in other states who worked at NHLAA at some time in their career! Happy Holidays, Pat Kaplan

Editor’s Note:  Now would be an excellent time to contribute to LAA (New Haven Legal Assistance).
