It was also recognised for its organising efforts encouraging the DC Department of Corrections to revise its new video visitation policy. The Washington, DC-based team that worked on this matter included partner Steve Hollman; associates Jennifer Brechbill, Sarah Cummings, Neal Desai, Mike Kass, Uta Rawson and Erica Knievel Songer; and legislative analyst Jack Jacobson.

The annual luncheon recognises law firms and volunteers for their exceptional pro bono work on WLC cases.
