Jackson Lewis Supports the Chicago Bar Foundation's "Investing in Justice" Campaign

CHICAGO, IL (July 27, 2017) Jackson Lewis P.C., one of the country’s preeminent workplace law firms, is pleased to announce its participation in the 2017 Chicago Bar Foundation (CBF) Investing in Justice Campaign. This year set a new record for the amount of funds donated to the Campaign and increased awareness for the urgent need for pro bono legal advocacy and representation in the Chicago area. For the fifth consecutive year, every attorney in the firm’s Chicago office contributed to the Campaign. 

“It was an honor to participate in the Investing in Justice Campaign, and we are very proud of the Jackson Lewis team for its participation in this important community initiative. This Campaign has a special place in Chicago’s legal community as it helps those in need navigate the complexities of the legal system and receive crucial legal services,” said James Botana and Natalie Nathanson, Principals in Jackson Lewis’ Chicago office.

More than half of low-income and disadvantaged people in the Chicago area are unable to get crucial legal help due to a shortage of resources, and the Campaign grants play a key role in helping to bridge that gap. In 2017, nearly 5,100 individual attorneys and legal professionals contributed more than $1.51 million through the Campaign. “The tens of thousands of people receiving services made possible by the Campaign include the elderly, disabled individuals, veterans, children, domestic violence victims, people at risk of losing their homes, and immigrants fleeing persecution and abuse,” according to the Investing in Justice Campaign press release.

Since 2007, the Campaign has raised nearly $15 million to help people in need get critical legal assistance and leveraged millions more in support for our community’s pro bono and legal aid organizations.
