Legal Legends Gallery
Here Yesterday, Remembered Forever.
What does it mean to be a Legal Legend?
Throughout the years, impoverished families, individuals, and community groups have looked to Bay Area Legal to overcome their greatest challenges.
Those revered as top-skilled professionals and champions of justice who have served as an immeasurable help to legal aid, pro bono, and the legal community at large are known to us as Legal Legends. Their leadership has inspired hope and sparked positive change that will impact generations to come.
Thank you to those selfless individuals who have championed legal aid and pro bono during their lifetime. These legacies leave a lasting imprint on our work and mission.
Donors who wish to commemorate an existing Legal Legend can contribute any amount in their memory. Donors who would like to elect a new Legal Legend to the gallery and encourage others to give in their loved one’s memory may do so with a contribution of $500 or more. Your contribution will provide essential services in the name of your loved one, ensuring justice is accessible to all.
