Access to Justice Commission Seeks to Recognize Firms’ Support for Legal Services Community

March 03, 2023

The D.C. Access to Justice Commission invites District law firms to participate in its Raising the Bar in D.C. Campaign, which recognizes firms’ philanthropic support of the legal services community in 2022. The deadline to submit applications is March 15, 2023.

Firms that have donated a minimum of .075 percent of their D.C. office revenue to local legal services organizations during the previous calendar year will qualify for a recognition level of silver, gold, or platinum.

To be formally recognized, firms must complete an annual reporting form online or email it in PDF or Word format to Vesna Vidovic of Ernst & Young at [email protected]. Ernst & Young will keep the information confidential, releasing only to the commission the participating firms’ recognition level (silver, gold, or platinum) and aggregated data.  

For questions or additional information, please contact Margaret Emery at [email protected]
