No Mercy, No Justice is Brooks Harrington’s first book.
Reverend Harrington is the founder of the Methodist Justice Ministry, a pro bono legal ministry that provides legal protections and supportive services for indigent victims of child abuse and family violence. He has been a Marine infantry officer, a criminal prosecutor in Washington D.C., a litigator in private practice, an ordained United Methodist elder, and the pastor of an inner-city church.

About the Methodist Justice Ministry
The Methodist Justice Ministry was founded by Reverend Brooks Harrington in 2006, first to protect indigent women and children from domestic violence, neglect and abuse, and second, to help them to new lives free of violence, abuse, fear and self-loathing.
The MJM is thoroughly faith driven. Its legal director, Brooks Harrington, is an ordained United Methodist minister as well as a licensed attorney. Our scriptural motto is: “Speak out for those who cannot speak, for the rights of all the destitute. Speak out, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and the needy.” Proverbs 31: 8-9
Since the MJM began, we have represented in court the interests of hundreds of women and children from low income households. We have not only obtained but also enforced court orders for protection, for custody, for denial or restriction of visitation by the abusers, and for child support and medical support. And we have counseled with more than 5,000 individuals desperate for help. The MJM staff presently consists of three lawyers, a legal intern and two legal assistants. We receive between 20 and 30 new requests for legal representation every week. We need to expand, and the net proceeds from No Mercy, No Justice will help us to do this.
