Yetter Coleman Honored with 2021 Champion of Justice Award by the Texas Access to Justice Commission

Yetter Coleman was named a 2021 Champion of Justice Law Firm by the Texas Access to Justice (TATJ) Commission, winning the highest amount raised in the Small-Size Firm award category. TATJ annually holds its Champion of Justice competition to encourage financial contributions by firms and attorneys that are provided to legal aid organizations to ensure free civil legal assistance to low-income Texans.

Texas Supreme Court Justice and TATJ Liaison Justice Brett Busby presented the award to Amy Farish, Yetter Coleman’s Pro Bono Coordinator, who proudly accepted it on behalf of the firm. “It is my honor to accept this award on behalf of all of my colleagues who are united in supporting Texas Access to Justice in its critical mission of ensuring access to the state’s civil legal system by all Texas citizens.”

The Texas Access to Justice Commission was formed by the Supreme Court of Texas in 2001 and is charged with developing and implementing initiatives designed to expand access to, and enhance the quality of, justice in civil legal matters for low-income Texans.
