Infographic: Access to Justice Gap

Our justice system is becoming increasingly inaccessible to millions and millions of Americans. While nonprofit organizations and private law firms can offer probono legal aid services to individuals that cannot afford to hire an attorney out-of-pocket, the funding, and thus manpower, of these organizations is extremely restricted. Unfortunately, the reality is that many Americans cannot afford an attorney or find one probono so they go unrepresented in legal cases that can have serious and potentially life altering consequences.

So, just how acute is the access to justice gap in this country?
