Mayer Brown’s Washington, DC office has received two prestigious honors related to pro bono and charitable giving.

For the second year in a row, the Washington office was honored by the DC Circuit Judicial Conference at its annual “Forty at Fifty Judicial Pro Bono Recognition” event, which recognizes those firms where 40 percent of the lawyers perform at least 50 or more hours of pro bono work.

The office also was honored by the DC Access to Justice Commission for Gold Level Participation in its inaugural Raising the Bar in DC Campaign. The Commission recognized law firms that donated a benchmark percentage of their DC office revenue to local legal service organizations in 2011. Attorney General Eric Holder, who was the keynote speaker for the honoree reception, congratulated the firms on striving to close the “justice gap” and make equal access to justice “not just an aspiration, but a reality.”
