Release

NEW YORK, May 20, 2021 – “Pro bono-first” organization Her Justice honored Baker Botts with the ‘Her Justice Firm Commitment Award,’ which recognizes the three partner law firms that donated the greatest number of hours to Her Justice matters per capita of each firm’s New York office in 2020. Baker Botts took the top spot of the three law firms honored.

Her Justice has been working with women living in poverty in New York City for over 28 years, recruiting and mentoring volunteer lawyers to provide free legal help to address individual and systemic legal barriers.

Baker Botts has been a long-time supporter and partner of Her Justice for over 10 years. Baker Botts Intellectual Property litigator Eric Faragi, a member of the pro bono committee in the New York office who oversees and participates in many of the family court cases the firm handles from Her Justice, said, “We are proud of this award from Her Justice. We are happy to volunteer our time to support such a worthy cause and worthy organization.”

Amy Barasch, Executive Director of Her Justice, said “Her Justice is proud to recognize Baker Botts as a 2021 Her Justice Firm Commitment awardee. This award means that of the over 100 firms with which we work, Baker Botts’ per capita contribution of volunteer time assisting women living in poverty was exceptional.” She added that “the firm helped Her Justice support our clients with critical legal assistance amid an incredibly tumultuous time. Thank you, Baker Botts, for your partnership in bringing the power of the legal profession to those who need it most.”

More than 100 law firms and corporations provide pro bono legal or other professional services to Her Justice and the women the organization serves.
