The Access to Justice Law Firm Campaign involved more than 120 firms throughout Texas. Attorneys were encouraged to make the suggested $150 Access to Justice Contribution on their State Bar of Texas dues statement. Winning firms were selected in two categories: highest overall contribution and the percentage of attorneys within the firm that contributed. Jackson Walker was recognized among firms with the highest overall contributions.
"Jackson Walker is proud to be a part of Texas Access to Justice Commission's exemplary efforts to provide legal aid to those in need," said Brian Kilpatrick, who leads the firm's pro bono efforts.
The Commission will present awards to the winning firms at a cocktail reception on October 21 in Austin.
This year the Access to Justice campaign raised more than $1 million for legal aid. Civil legal aid helps those with critical legal issues, like spouses and children of domestic abuse, elderly citizens who have been denied life–sustaining prescriptions, veterans who are not able to receive critical medical benefits, and families whose homes are facing wrongful foreclosure.
