The Never Again Foundation is a nonprofit charity that provides pro bono legal assistance to families of victims killed by domestic violence. Our mission is to prevent all killers from financially profiting from causing death, and instead fight to have the assets go to the rightful and appropriate family members of the victim.
The origin of Never Again Foundation began with the vision and drive of Mr. R. Keith Perkins to fix what he thought was a "broken" legal system. Mr. Perkins was a partner in a law firm for many years and throughout this time he was continually presented with cases that ended without proper justice for victims of crime and too many perpetrators escaping their legal convictions. As a compassionate and forward thinking man, Mr. Perkins continued to examine what he saw was missing from the justice system and tried to find a way to help those people who were lost wandering through this complicated method to finding justice that is full of loopholes and dead ends. Mr. Perkins was well aware that there was no money to be made in the business of "helping" people and that accident cases was not where his heart belonged. He witnessed many victims shunned by the legal system and denied access to laws that protected them, so he ventured out to "bridge the gap" and fix the system. This is when the Never Again Foundation was born.
Since that time the Never Again Foundation has won over $288 million dollars for it clients in judgments and is optimistic to what the future holds for crime victims’ justice and the growth of the Foundation.
