A just cause


Breakfast may start off the day right, but for the Equal Justice Council of Maryland's Legal Aid Bureau, it was also the way to start off its 2000 Fund Campaign right. The Justice Council helps raise money for Legal Aid's mission of providing legal services to Maryland's poor.

About 200 guests gathered at the Camden Yards Banquet Room to honor some of the council's big supporters, who helped collect more than $380,000 for agency programs in the past year.

Among the attendees: Decatur H. Miller and Tom Bodie, Equal Justice Council co-chairs; Robert Kershaw, Catherine Wenzing and James Nolan Jr., council members; Wilhelm H. Joseph Jr., Legal Aid executive director; Warren S. Oliveri Jr., Legal Aid board chair; Ben Civiletti, board member; Chief Judge Robert M. Bell of the Maryland Court of Appeals; Alex Forger, New York attorney and keynote speaker; Pamila Brown, principal counsel with Maryland Department General Services; Genelle Watts, assistant counsel with McCormick & Co.; Gordon Cooley, general counsel with F&M; Bancorp; Susan Erlichman, Maryland Legal Services deputy director; Paul Carlin, executive director of Maryland State Bar Association; and Earl Hunt, president of Hunt & Associates Inc.
