Miller & Chevalier Honored for Ongoing Pro Bono Commitment by Chief Judges of the District of Columbia
Miller & Chevalier is pleased to announce that the firm was again named a pro bono leader in Washington, DC by the federal Chief Judges of the District of Columbia. To qualify for the "40 at 50" honor, firms with 25 or more lawyers must have at least 40 percent of all attorneys spend at least 50 hours per year on pro bono work. Miller & Chevalier was one of only two firms with 60 percent or more of its attorneys contributing at least 50 hours of pro bono work in both 2019 and 2020. In all, 39 firms were recognized this year at this year's virtual "40 at 50" Pro Bono Recognition event. Chief Judge Sri Srinivasan remarked on the importance of these firm's efforts, stating that "By emphasizing pro bono service, these firms are upholding the most important values of the legal profession. As low-income DC residents are hit particularly hard by the pandemic, the pro bono work of these firms is especially important in this time. Together, the lawyers at these firms devoted hundreds of thousands of hours to help ensure that persons living in poverty in DC have equal access to justice under law."
