The Maine Bar association and many similar institutions are charging fees for referals to lawyers. A fee that at times is out of reach for the homeless and very very poor. This is a slap in the face of our cherished values including the belief in liberty and justice for all, including the poor. With Legal aid funding stretched to the limit and with a lack of justice access to many of Maine's poor, it is extremely important more than ever to stop this unjust fee. Access to courts and an attorney is a legal and fundamental human right, not a privalige.
