James B. Lee Justice Center

James B. Lee Justice Center

Due to earthquake damage to our building of 20 years, “and Justice for all” decided to look for a new home. We subsequently bought a beautiful brick and double barreled-roof building at 960 South Main Street and launched the Next Generation of Justice Capital Campaign to retrofit and provide furnishings, equipment, and technology infrastructure. 

With a generous donation, the Florence J. Gillmor Foundation has chosen to name the new center after James B. Lee and the lobby after Florence J. Gillmor. A partner at Parsons Behle & Latimer, Mr. Lee was one of three original founders of Utah Legal Services, served on the Board of Legal Aid Society of Salt Lake, was instrumental in creating and sustaining “and Justice for all” and has been an example of service throughout his stellar legal career. Ms. Gillmor was a lifelong supporter of Utah’s disadvantaged and her estate has a long history of generously supporting AJFA’s civil legal programs.

Please consider helping us raise the $3,581,600 needed to complete our project. We are currently at 92% of our goal to create a facility that will allow us to provide quality, life-changing legal assistance to both current and future Utahns in need. Whether an immediate donation, or a pledge over the next several years, making a commitment now will make a big difference.

The names of all donors who pledge to give $5,000 or more will be included on a beautiful “Champions of Justice” recognition wall installation prominently displayed in the Justice Courtyard in the center of our new building.

Responsible Stewardship

The remodel will keep the historical charm but incorporate environmentally sound solutions to save money, reduce energy and water usage and fulfill our commitment to a greener space.

More Accessible & Safe

The building is accessible for clients and staff with disabilities and close to the courthouse and public transportation. Seismic upgrades make the building safer in the event of another earthquake.

Designed for a post-pandemic world

The newly designed space, along with technology upgrades, will allow our staff to better participate in increasingly online client intake and hearings and serve clients from more geographic areas in less time.
