D.C. Courts Recognize 4,500+ Lawyers on 2021 Capital Pro Bono Honor Roll

Congratulations to the members of the 2021 Capital Pro Bono Honor Roll!

On June 1, the D.C. Courts, in partnership with the D.C. Access to Justice Commission and the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center, published the 2021 Capital Pro Bono Honor Roll, recognizing 4,572 District attorneys who provided 50+ hours of pro bono service during 2021, with more than half of them providing over 100 hours of service, qualifying them for the High Honor Roll.

The Honor Roll is posted on the DC Courts website, along with a letter from Chief Judge Anna Blackburne-Rigsby and Chief Judge Anita Josey-Herring. You can access the list of registrants by name or by affiliated organization.

We are pleased to see so many attorneys who participate in Legal Aid’s Pro Bono Program receive this much-deserved recognition for their commitment to serving our District neighbors. As you know, the need is now greater than ever as the effects of the pandemic, and the resulting legal needs, continue to disproportionately affect the District’s vulnerable and low-income populations. We congratulate and thank you all for partnering with us to make justice real in our community.
