Raising the Bar Event Puts Spotlight on Important Access to Justice Commission Campaign
Earlier this week, lawyers from across the District gathered at a reception hosted by Jones Day to honor 36 law firms that together contributed $3.6 million last year to local civil legal services through the D.C. Access to Justice Commission’s second annual Raising the Bar in D.C. Campaign. Judge David Tatel delivered an impassioned speech thanking the D.C. legal community and urging them to do even more. Legal Aid is grateful to all of the law firms recognized through this campaign for their contributions to improving access to justice in the District.
