"For twenty years, VLP volunteers have helped to assure that 'Access to Justice' is not a hollow phrase for the thousands of Maine people who need, but cannot afford, legal assistance." - Chief Justice Leigh I. Saufley
"VLP offers a lifeline to people at the end of their rope, helping them to secure justice in a system that is difficult to navigate without an attorney." - Former Attorney General G. Steven Rowe
"Equal access to justice is at the heart of our democracy. VLP volunteers exemplify the heart of Maine by helping to guarantee that our legal system serves all Mainers regardless of income." - Former Governor John E. Baldacci
"The time and expertise the VLP volunteers gave showed me they valued me as a person. Now I have the self-confidence to stand up for myself when legal problems arise." - Shirley
