Eric Avildsen, executive director of Vermont Legal Aid, who served on the legal services committee of the commission, said making the judiciary website more comprehensive and easier to navigate would help everyone.

"When you end up in the court's system to find something, a lawyer can't find their way to get where they need to go," Avildsen said.
Avildsen said many of the other changes will not have a significant impact on the lowest income Vermonters.
One of the biggest issues the judiciary faces is a shortage of lawyers who can afford to work in rural communities or at firms like Vermont Legal Aid that serve low-income populations, according to Avildsen. Crushing student debt incurred by recent law school grads has made it harder than ever to attract new attorneys to poverty law, he said.

"Legal Aid is honored to participate in this conference," said Eric Avildsen, Executive Director of Vermont Legal Aid. "Vermont families are working hard to keep their homes, their jobs, and provide for their kids," he said. "We are absolutely committed to advocating for common sense solutions to the myriad economic problems confronting the middle class and working Vermonters," said Avildsen. "This conference is a great opportunity for Grace to share some of what we have accomplished in Vermont, and to hear what other states are doing, and to find out how the Administration can help," he said.

"Over the last few years the number of foreclosures in Vermont has almost doubled and Legal Aid has had to devote more resources to respond to this crisis," said Avildsen. That work has been supported through a coordinated effort by the Vermont Access to Justice campaign, and the Vermont Bar Association. "Those resources have been critical to our success," said Avildsen. "As a result, many families have avoided foreclosure altogether," he said.
