Texas Access to Justice Commission Recognizes Jackson Walker as a Champion of Justice Law Firm for Eighth Consecutive Year


With more than 4 million Texans living below poverty and approximately 5.53 million qualifying for legal aid[1], the Texas Access to Justice Commission challenges law firms across the state to participate in the Justice for All Campaign. During an awards ceremony held in conjunction with National Pro Bono Week, the Commission honored Jackson Walker as a Champion of Justice Law Firm for contributing the third-most amount in the large-size law firm category.

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 since establishing the Champion of Justice Law Firm Awards, the Commission has recognized Jackson Walker for raising one of the highest amounts of money in the “Large (76+)” category of the competition.

“To have received this award every year since the Campaign was conceived is a wonderful achievement and just goes to show how committed we are to ensuring every Texan is afforded equal access to legal services,” said Brian A. Kilpatrick, a Dallas litigation partner who chairs the Pro Bono Committee at Jackson Walker.
