Generous Associates Campaign

Help Make Justice Real this Summer

The Generous Associates Campaign is a fundraising drive run by associates at Washington, D.C. law firms each summer. This year’s campaign kicked off on June 1. Although contributors to the campaign include associates, partners, non-lawyers, and the firms themselves, it is a campaign that allows the true generosity of the associates in our legal community to come through in spectacular fashion.

Last year’s record-breaking Generous Associates Campaign has raised approximately one quarter of Legal Aid’s budget! The critical funds raised through this campaign allow Legal Aid to continue to provide free legal services to the neediest members of the D.C. community in the areas of domestic violence/family, housing, public benefits, and consumer law.

This year’s Generous Associates Campaign Honorary Chair is Seth Waxman of Wilmer, Cutler, Pickering, Hale & Dorr LLP. Seth is universally considered to be among the country’s premier Supreme Court and appellate advocates – he has delivered 75 oral arguments in the United States Supreme Court. He served as Solicitor General of the United States from 1997 to 2001. Currently, Seth leads his firm’s appellate practice and engages in a broad litigation and counseling practice, with particular emphasis on complex challenges involving government or public policy, intellectual property, regulatory, criminal and commercial issues.

In 2008, Legal Aid bestowed its highest honor – the Servant of Justice Award – on Seth for his commitment and fight for access to justice for all. We are thrilled to have Seth’s support and leadership for our Generous Associates Campaign this year!
