Springfield Catholic Diocese To Offer Legal Help for the Poor


Poor people can get a public defender to help with criminal cases… but now the Springfield Catholic Diocese wants to help those who can’t afford lawyers for civil actions.

 

Bishop Thomas John Paprocki has announced the creation of a legal services program called “Caritas,” which will rely on a $1.5 million endowment and the volunteer services of area lawyers.

 

Paprocki… who is both a bishop and an attorney… says it is unjust to deny the poor the same access to legal representation that others enjoy.
