Blast from the Past / 1971: Ready to help with legal services

Judy Grimes sits at her desk in the office of Lewis-Clark Legal Services in Lewiston in this photo published in the Jan. 10, 1971, Lewiston Tribune. Grimes was about to take over as the agency’s director, and longtime Trib reporter Hal Hollister wrote a feature story about her and her new job. “Many of the cases we handle are really minor -- but they’re not minor to the person involved,” Grimes said. The agency had been established in Lewiston in 1968, with the aim of providing free legal service for low-income people.
