Erie County Bar Foundation
The Erie County Bar Foundation was formed in 1957 by a small group of concerned lawyers who wanted to help a friend in need. Over the decades, hundreds of attorneys in Erie County have benefited from the timely assistance of the Foundation, the only bar foundation in the United States dedicated to helping members of the profession in times of crisis.
- Assisting members of the legal profession and their families in Erie County
- Improving the administration of justice
- Cultivating knowledge and understanding of the law, and
- Promoting the study of law, the science of jurisprudence, and legal research.
