A $4 million fund will be set up to assist people who are facing serious legal challenges, such as civil or criminal charges.
The fund is meant to provide lawyers and other professionals with the resources they need to navigate the legal system, according to a news release.
The initiative will begin in early 2018.
“It is important to note that this fund is not an insurance policy,” said attorney Paul P. Chiappa of Law Office of the President, which is overseeing the legal fund.
“This fund will not be used to pay for legal representation for clients who are in dire need.
Rather, the fund will act as a safety net for those facing legal challenges.”
The fund will include a $2 million insurance policy, with a guaranteed income equal to 80 percent of the amount spent on legal representation.
The $1 million in funding is for legal fees and legal costs.
The legal fund was established in December 2016 to provide legal assistance to people in the wake of a lawsuit in which a family was charged with murder and rape.
The family of one of the victims was charged in the 2015 murder of her cousin, but it was never proven that the two women had ever had sexual relations.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, the family of the murder victim had hired a lawyer in the Southern district of New Jersey, but that lawyer, Daniel K. Sullivan, died in 2013.
The prosecutor who handled the case, Joseph P. McMahon, later died in 2015.
Last year, the defense fund received $4.3 million from the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Justice, according, to the news release announcing the legal launch.
The program will be funded by an additional $4,300 in funding from the U
