Civil Justice supports a Network of private attorneys who maintain their own practices. Through participation in the Civil Justice Network, these solo and small firm Maryland attorneys are committed to growing their own practices while increasing access to legal assistance for traditionally underserved members of the public. Network attorneys provide affordable, high quality services statewide and across numerous practice areas. Civil Justice Network members have the opportunity to share ideas, experiences, and resources with other like-minded attorneys through a listserv, trainings, mentorships and events. Network attorneys are able to grow and learn from the experiences of other attorneys while still maintaining the independence of running their own law firm.
A recent survey of Civil Justice Network members found that:
- 89% of Network members have earned fees from a referral from Civil Justice in the past two years.
- Over 95% of Network members routinely provide “low bono” services as part of their practice.
- 88% of Network members would recommend membership to a colleague.
