Children’s Law Center recognized Crowell & Moring with the 2022 Pro Bono Champion award in recognition of the firm’s longstanding commitment to pro bono and partnership with the organization. The award was presented at a benefit on September 20, 2022, in Washington, D.C. Crowell & Moring is one of only a few firms that have been honored twice with the Champion award in the Children’s Law Center’s history.
“We are honored to receive this award from Children’s Law Center,” said Crowell & Moring chair Philip T. Inglima. “It is particularly meaningful to be recognized by an extraordinary organization like Children’s Law Center, one of the premier nonprofits in the city, and the gold standard for legal services organizations in the country.”
Almost 100 lawyers from the firm have worked with Children’s Law Center on 200 matters. Working with Children’s Law Center, Crowell attorneys have helped parents secure necessary housing repairs to improve children’s health, provided critical research regarding a change in special education law that helped to inform Children’s Law Center’s advocacy on behalf of parents, and assisted with numerous complex family law matters serving as guardians ad litem or helping parents and caregivers increase stability for kids.
“Children’s Law Center is proud to name Crowell & Moring as our 2022 Pro Bono Champion,” said Children’s Law Center Executive Director Judith Sandalow. “For almost two decades, Crowell & Moring has been a dedicated pro bono partner — passionate about serving our community, ready to provide high-quality representation on a variety of matters impacting DC kids, and wholeheartedly invested in helping children and families. The firm’s deep commitment to supporting District children in need is clear in their enthusiasm to take on cases impacting a child’s family, health and education, as well as their unwavering financial and strategic support of our nonprofit. We thank Crowell & Moring and look forward to continuing our work together to reach even more children and families.”
“Our community is fortunate to have Children’s Law Center,” said Crowell public service partner Susan M. Hoffman. “Their decades-long commitment to children is second to none, and has made a marked difference in the lives of children who otherwise would go without legal advocacy.”
