Our annual Access to Justice event was held on November 6th at The Crystal Tea Room. Thank you to everyone who joined us for an evening of drinks, food, networking, and music to celebrate our 2019 Unified Giving Partners’ generous contributions to the Bar Foundation and the outstanding achievements of pro bono and public interest lawyers in Philadelphia.

Hausfeld LLP was presented with the 2019 Pro Bono Award of the Philadelphia Bar Foundation and Linda Peyton with the Philadelphia Bar Foundation Award. The Honorable Timothy K. Lewis closed the program with an inspiring speech about the Equal Justice Center project and the important impact it will have on the City of Philadelphia.

A special thank you to Ralph Wellington, Jud Aaron, John Grady, Steve Dash, and Stan Slotter from the band Standard Time, to Kates Media for the award night videos, and to Sam Zolten from Photo Facts for event photography.
