Per Attorney Giving

For decades, law firms have measured their donations by the number of lawyers in
their local offices multiplied by a standard hourly rate (currently $300 per hour)
— referred to as per attorney giving.
These gifts remain foundational to our ability to serve low-wage workers and
their families. Through their gifts to the 2020 Annual Fund, they allow us the privilege of Putting Justice to Work.
We are grateful to donors at all levels:
