As part of the Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia’s Making Justice Real Campaign, Williams & Connolly attorneys and staff contributed more than $165,000 to support essential legal services in the city, breaking its own record by $25,000 and becoming just the third firm ever to raise that much. Overall, the Making Justice Real Campaign raised $3.1 million for D.C. Legal Aid, shattering its goal to raise $2.5 million, even amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Each year, Legal Aid helps thousands of D.C. residents in need of legal assistance who cannot afford a lawyer.
Special thanks to the firm’s Generous Associates Campaign Committee for spear-heading this effort: Sarah O’Connor, Seth Bowers, Shauna Kramer, Noah Weiss, Wendy Zupac, Yifan Wang, Michael Mestitz, and Paul Ream.
