In the realm of legal advocacy and promoting the principles of justice, few organizations have as significant an impact as the Legal Foundation of Washington (LFW). The nonprofit organization was created at the direction of the Washington Supreme Court to distribute IOLTA funds to legal aid organizations across the state. LFW has more than 35 years of experience raising, managing, and distributing funds to achieve equal civil justice for low-income people. LFW seeks to ensure access to civil legal aid for all people in Washington and to improve equity in the civil justice system.
Since 1984, LFW has distributed more than $200 million to Washington’s legal aid community. Bill Pickett, who is serving on the LFW’s Board of Trustees, had the honor of presenting the organization’s annual report to the esteemed Washington State Supreme Court.
