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 $209,000 to support essential legal services in the city, breaking its own record by $42,000, becoming just the second firm ever to donate more than $200,000, and raising the second-highest amount among all D.C. firms. Overall, the Making Justice Real Campaign raised over $3.1 million, surpassing Legal Aid’s $3 million goal, even amidst the continuing 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, Yifan Wang, Michael Mestitz, and Paul Ream.
