On Thursday July 21, WWM personnel participated in the 18th annual Race Judicata® 5K Run/Walk benefiting Chicago Volunteer Legal Services Foundation. CVLS is recognized as the most comprehensive, efficient and cost-effective civil legal aid provider in Chicago. Its nearly 3,000 volunteer attorneys donate free legal services to thousands of low-income Chicagoans each year.
WWM takes its commitment to pro bono seriously. WWM and its attorneys have consistently demonstrated their commitment to pro bono by both providing pro bono legal services through various pro bono organizations, including CVLS, and through financial support. 2011 was the third consecutive year that WWM sponsored CVLS’s Race Judicata®. WWM subscribes to CVLS’s mission of providing high quality legal service at no cost to the poor and working poor of Chicago, “Because equal access to justice is everyone’s fight.”
