    There si no such thing as access to justice. I run Helping Americans Navigate the Courts. I have 9 active clients. I give FREE legal help. I make nothing at all, and my husband put $28,000 of his own money into the company that he had in savings long before he met me in 2009. Our experience is that court clerks lie and refuse documents, the sustem is not adhering to the rules of court, and only lawyers know how to navigate when the courts fail to folllow their own rules. It is simple to see and to prove that the courts are designed to keep pro per litigants out of family and civil court. The ones with disabilities are the worst abused by the system. The ADA requests are flat out ignored. I have been preparing my evidence, and as a severely disabled person, it is taking a lnog time, but we are filing in civil court this summer against the courts, the judges, the lawyers and other perpetrators of injustices in violation of court rules and ADA rights.
