DETAILS

Rodgers asked Peterson about administrative overhead, the kind of cases Legal Action’s lawyers took and the kind of clients they served. Only then did he lend his support.

“This is not to disparage your mainstream charity, because they do very good work,” Peterson said. “But talking about poor people needing a lawyer is very different than talking about how we need to raise money for children’s cancer research.”
