For Whom Do We Speak?
The Campaign for justice assists adults and children in Maine who do have have access to justice in civil legal matters by raising support for six organizations.
What Are We Talking About?
Truly the most basic things. Things we take for granted for our own families: food, health, shelter, safety. Matters for which we know a lawyer is needed: custody, discrimination, due process, denial of benefits, citizenship, protection from abuse, education rights and access for our children, eviction, fraud . . .
To Whom Do We Give a Voice?
Those who benefit from the Campaign for Justice live at or below the poverty level. In Maine, 73% of those living in poverty are women and children. One out of every six in poverty is disabled, and one out of every ten is 60 or older.

2017 Campaign To Honor Peter J. DeTroy III
The 2017 Campaign for Justice has been dedicated to the memory of Peter DeTroy by the Campaign Steering Committee. Detroy had agreed in April to chair the 2017 Campaign. The dedication was announced at the June 23 summer bar meeting luncheon by 2016 Chair Margaret ‘Meg’ LePage.
Peter's wife Mary Roy and his colleague Paul Driscoll of Norman Hanson DeTroy, LLC, will be honorary chair and campaign chair of the 2017 Campaign.
"I wanted to be involved with the Campaign for Justice in Peter’s memory to continue the work he would have done ensuring the availability of legal services to Mainers with the least access, an issue he cared deeply about,” said Mary Roy about her active involvement.
Driscoll said of his colleague and friend, " Peter cared deeply about the law and its power to protect the most vulnerable among us. He looked forward to being the Campaign Chair and was proud of the Campaign’s mission to assure that everyone in Maine is given access to justice and treated with dignity and respect. His life is a testament to his commitment to others, and it is very fitting that the 2017 Campaign is dedicated to his good memory.”
Stephen Hessert, Norman Hanson DeTroy’s managing partner, said, “The firm is excited that the 2017 Campaign for Justice will be in Peter’s honor. He had an unwavering commitment to access to justice for all, and the firm will work to further that goal, and to honor Peter’s legacy.”
