The Best Kind of Pro Bono Work Attorneys Can Do Is One That Has Personal Meaning”

Nearly Every Day We Can See Miracles Happen”

A measure of the firm’s increased commitment to closing the justice gap was the promotion last year of Joanna Plichta Boisen to chief pro bono and social impact officer. Boisen has been increasingly recognized as a powerful force for championing equity and justice—in Washington State and around the country. Last year, the Washington State Bar Association honored her with its Pro Bono and Public Service Award and produced this tribute video.

We were thrilled last year to be recognized for our longstanding pro bono support of the Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center in Redmond, Washington, which does incredible work supporting people with disabilities. Our Bellevue associate, Christine Hawkins, is on the board of Little Bit, and her efforts helped earn us recognition as a 2020 Corporate Strides awardee. Christine and Little Bit’s executive director, Paula J. Del Giudice, introduce you to this inspiring organization.
