In the beginning.
It was all about multi-faceted advocacy.
Having been Indiana court officers and/or local legal system reform advocates for two (2) decades or more before co-founding NJCDLP, the late Mr. Rodney A. Logal, his widow, Dr. Zena Crenshaw-Logal, and their colleague, Dr. Andrew D. Jackson, launched the nonprofit organization with these words:
National Judicial Conduct and Disability Law Project, Inc. was developed and is being operated by people who understand that at this time in America, successfully litigating for the public good can require more than clever legal arguments and compelling facts. NJCDLP founders assembled and laid the foundation for recruiting some of the most formidable legal scholars, civil litigators, investigators, public relations and marketing experts, journalists, fund raisers and special events coordinators to oversee a virtual ADVOCACY MACHINE for representative victims of legal abuse.
The objective is legal reform through litigation, galvanized by every imaginable form of advocacy that can lawfully and effectively help preserve the 'rule of law' in the United States on a case by case by case basis. At NJCDLP, we do not chase crowds and big budgets. We construct them from available resources. Our strength is the collective strength of conscientious people. We do not borrow our creed from the familiar phrase, 'from each according to his ability to each according to his need'.
Come to NJCDLP, expecting to 'get by with a little help from (your) friends'. Yet the goal of that help is real, measurable relief. NJCDLP is geared to strike a balance as best it can between the lofty pursuit of positive, government reform and the provision of immediate relief to victims of past and present malefactors. The divide is much smaller than many people think.
