"I’m sure most FJA members think of the EAGLE contribution as an imposition. In the most superficial way, it is, because money being given as an EAGLE contribution is money that can’t be spent on something else. But our EAGLE contributions are more than just money. An EAGLE contribution is an opportunity to make us all stronger.

Although we are lawyers who represent clients, and we are all engaged in a fight for those clients, the FJA is engaged in the battle that takes place years before our clients ever need us. The FJA takes on the people intent on changing the rules of the legal system to prevent us from ever entering a courthouse. The FJA does its work before our clients even know they need help. It is the time when our clients are most vulnerable; it is when they are unaware of the law because they do not yet need the protection of the law. That’s the time when we need the FJA to fight its battles; the battles before the war. FJA actually stands for "Frontlines of Justice Association."

I think of my EAGLE contribution like it’s a donation of blood. Without our EAGLE contributions, the FJA wouldn’t have the skilled people necessary to fight the battles before the war, and our clients’ wars would be over before they begin. An EAGLE contribution isn’t something we give only in good times. We give every time, good times and bad, but especially the bad. Because the enemies of justice are always busy, and they see our hard times as an opportunity to be busier. My EAGLE contribution is how I tell them they’re wrong. Each and every legislative session, the FJA fights for our survival, and without EAGLE contributions, we won’t survive. I gladly make my EAGLE contribution to insure the legal system that exists when I retire is at least as strong as the system that existed when I started my career."
