DeWitt Law Firm Pledges $100,000 to Increase Access to the Justice System
MADISON | MILWAUKEE | MINNEAPOLIS – DeWitt LLP announced today it is donating $100,000 towards assisting with the pursuit of greater access to justice for communities in Wisconsin and Minnesota. The law firm is committing $20,000 annually for the next five years to organizations that assist individuals who have historically been under-represented in the justice system. DeWitt’s pledge is a commitment to support local communities and an acknowledgement of today’s powerful call for change, equality, and justice.
As a law firm, DeWitt recognizes that among the inequities that exist in our society today are the injustices suffered by those who cannot access the legal system, which often prevents equal justice from being realized. The justice system favors those who are represented, and justice for those without representation is a fleeting hope.
“While DeWitt has long volunteered time through various non-profits to offer citizens legal assistance in the pursuit of justice, we feel it is imperative to further the cause, especially now, by lending our financial support,” said Bradley C. Fulton, President & Managing Partner at DeWitt. “As a law firm, we understand that not everyone has access to justice and this pledge aligns well with our commitment to respect the law, while helping to pursue true equality within our justice system. It is our hope this donation is a small step towards supporting the system’s much needed transformation,” he added.
DeWitt LLP is one of the ten largest law firms based in Wisconsin, with an additional presence in Minnesota. It has nearly 140 attorneys practicing in Madison and Metropolitan Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Minneapolis, Minnesota, in a variety of legal areas and has the experience to service clients of all scopes and sizes. The firm is known for its work in several areas, including intellectual property, patents, trademarks and copyright law, civil rights litigation, construction litigation, corporate law, employment, environmental, employee benefits, estate planning, family law, government relations, health care, litigation, real estate, and tax law.
