(April 12, 2021, Washington, DC) — Steptoe was honored by the Chief Judges of the District of Columbia federal courts at a ceremony to recognize outstanding leadership in pro bono service and to encourage members of the bar to provide pro bono legal services to persons living in poverty in the District. The "40 at 50" breakfast, held virtually this year, honors law firms at which at least 40% of all attorneys dedicated 50 or more hours in 2019 and/or 2020 providing free legal representation to individuals with limited financial resources or to charitable organizations.
Steptoe received special recognition for having 50% or more of lawyers contributing at least 50 hours in both 2019 and 2020, and was one of only seven firms to have had 40% or more of their partners hit the 50-hour mark in both years.
