For the seventh year in a row, the Texas Access to Justice Commission has honored Jackson Walker as a Champion of Justice Law Firm. Presented in conjunction with National Pro Bono Week, the ceremony took place on the evening of October 18, 2018, at The University of Texas at Austin.
Formed by the Supreme Court of Texas in 2001, the Texas Access to Justice Commission develops and implements initiatives designed to expand access to justice in civil legal matters for low-income residents. Every year, the Commission acknowledges law firms, attorneys, and staff that contribute the highest overall percentage of contributing attorneys to the Justice for All Campaign.
In 2018, the campaign raised over $1.3 million for legal aid, of which Jackson Walker contributed the second-highest amount and third-highest percentage of attorney participation in the large-size law firm category. Representing Jackson Walker as Champion of Justice Society members are Charles L. Babcock, Leonard H. Dougal, W. Gary Fowler, Nancy W. Hamilton, Peter Hansen, Sara K. Harris, Michael C. Roberts, Timothy C. Taylor, and Gerald Scott Webberman.
Founded more than 130 years ago, Jackson Walker is one of the oldest and largest Texas-based law firms. Each day, we work to create a culture that promotes altruism within the Firm and extends to the communities in which we live and work. In dedicating time and resources to local organizations, we have developed longstanding relationships with over 500 local, regional, and national civic, charitable, and professional organizations.
