Texas Access to Justice Commission Honors V&E With Champion of Justice Award

Published: 10-26-2017

The Texas Access to Justice Commission (TAJC) has honored Vinson & Elkins with a Champion of Justice Award in recognition of the firm’s stellar fundraising efforts as part of TAJC’s statewide Justice for All Campaign.

For two weeks in April, law firms participated in the Champions of Justice Firm Competition, collecting voluntary contributions in support of organizations providing legal services to the poor through grants distributed by the Texas Access to Justice Foundation and the Texas Bar Foundation. V&E was recognized in the “large size” category for raising the highest amount and achieving the highest rate of attorney participation during the campaign.

Awards were presented at the Justice for All Reception on October 23, 2017, and winners appeared in the October issue of the Texas Bar Journal.

Founded by the Texas Supreme Court in 2001, the TAJC focuses on developing and implementing programs designed to improve the quality of and increase access to the civil justice system for low-income Texans. Harry Reasoner, a litigation partner in V&E’s Houston office, has served as a TAJC member since 2006 and as chair since 2009.

“As lawyers and citizens, it’s critical that we do what we can to help make ‘Justice for All’ a reality in our country. Millions of Texans can’t afford lawyers for some of the worst problems in life, such as escaping domestic violence or veterans being denied the medical and disability benefits they have earned.” Reasoner said. “V&E is proud of its longstanding commitment to pro bono, and raising funds for the Texas Access to Justice Commission drive is an important part of that commitment.”
