Champions of Justice Gala Raises $413,000 for Veterans
The Texas Access to Justice Commission honored the service of veterans throughout the state at the Champions of Justice Gala Benefiting Veterans on Tuesday, May 1, at the AT&T Executive Education & Conference Center in Austin. More than $413,000 was raised to help provide civil legal services to low-income Texas veterans.
“The Champions of Justice Gala Benefiting Veterans honored the service of the brave men and women who have sacrificed for our country,” said Texas Supreme Court Justice Nathan L. Hecht, the Court’s liaison for access to justice issues. “These individuals dedicate their lives to our country, yet many do not receive assistance with civil legal matters, including improper denial of health benefits. With the funds raised at the gala, we are able to continue the fight to improve access to justice for all Texans.”
