Covington’s Williamson Appointed to DC Access to Justice Commission

March 8, 2011

WASHINGTON, DC, March 8, 2011 — Covington partner Thomas Williamson has been named by Chief Judge Eric T. Washington of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals to serve a three-year term as a member of the DC Access to Justice Commission, an organization responsible for improving access to the civil justice system.

Created by the Court of Appeals in 2005, the Commission seeks to increase resources for civil legal services, remove barriers that prevent poor people from accessing justice, advocate for increased pro bono work, and improve coordination of legal services for the underserved.

The Commission has seventeen commissioners, including judges from the D.C. Court of Appeals and Superior Court, past presidents of the D.C. Bar, executive directors of leading legal services providers, and community leaders.

“It is an honor to be asked to join in the efforts of such a distinguished group of legal leaders who are diligently working to provide legal services for the poor and increase resources to meet those needs,” Mr. Williamson said.

Mr. Williamson chairs Covington’s employment practice group.
