Hon. Edmund S. Muskie Access to Justice Award Dinner
Wednesday, May 28, 2014
Inn by the Bay, 88 Spring Street, Portland, Maine
This year’s award recipient is Harold Pachios, Esq., a founding partner of Preti Flaherty who has worked tirelessly to increase access to justice for all Mainers.
The Muskie Fund for Legal Services is a nonprofit fund with 501(c)3 status that was established to support the direct provision of legal services to low-income and needy elderly Maine residents.
The Fund has created a permanent award that is designed to recognize outstanding individual efforts to promote access to justice in Maine. Each year the Fund holds a fundraising dinner to honor the individual and raise money for legal services. Exclusive of actual Dinner expenses, 100% of Fund proceeds are distributed to the Fund beneficiaries each year. Donations to the Fund can be made throughout the year and are used to provide support for Maine's legal service providers.
The Fund is staffed on a volunteer basis to minimize program expenses. It is administered by a five-person Board of Trustees.
