Lacey and Larkin, Administering Justice Where it is Due

It often gets said that revenge is a dish best served cold. The good news is that justice can also get served in a court of law, using the legal framework set in place to guide you reach a verdict. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are two individuals that have been on the receiving end of some good justice, a ruling that made the duo become overnight millionaires. It all started out when Jim and Michael exposed atrocities of the Maricopa County Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, to the rest of the world in 2007.

Enraged by the actions of the two journalists, Joe had the duo arrested and detained, something that angered members of the public a lot more. After a petition by the community, Jim and Michael were immediately released and that is when a six-year court battle with the county ensued.

In 2013, it got determined that Maricopa County had unlawfully assaulted Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin through the questionable deeds of Arpaio and for that reason, the duo got awarded with a $3.75 million settlement, money they have since used to run the affairs of their Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund has always aimed at offering financial support to other smaller groups in the State of Arizona that fight for the rights of immigrants, and The Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project is no exception.

From the very beginning, The Florence Immigrant and Refugees Rights Project has aimed at helping the thousands of immigrants that face deportation charges from the Department of Homeland Security find justice by offering them with legal representation through their robust team of competent lawyers. Through efforts by The Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project, many men, women, and children have been able to regain their dignity and self-worth after winning cases that counter deportation charges.

Apart from that, the organization has gone the extra mile of providing legal services to ‘aliens’ that happen to be insane, suffer from critical and life threatening diseases, detainees in search of political asylum, victims of domestic violence, as well as individuals that have survived torture in one way or the other.

Thanks to efforts by The Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project and the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, people once in fear of wrongful eviction and persecution can now breathe a sigh of relief.

What turned out to be a nightmare for Jim and Michael in 2007 has now become a blessing in disguise, making it possible for the two journalists to help people in Arizona irrespective of ethnicity, race, or religion find a footing in life. By openly castigating against social profiling and discrimination, Jim and Michael have made people from across the globe consider racism as a vice that needs to get eliminated.

Thanks to their bravery, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey have helped the State of Arizona and the world by extension become a better place. Although the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is relatively young, there is a lot that the organization can accomplish all because of its leaders, Michael and Jim.
