About Us

Equal Access to Justice is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that started in 1988 by concerned attorneys who saw firsthand how many New Mexicans with civil legal problems could not get legal help.

When you donate to Equal Access to Justice, you are donating to four civil legal services providers in New Mexico.
