On January 29, Davis Malm’s attorneys joined hundreds of attorneys in the 16th Annual Walk to the Hill for Civil Legal Aid. At the Walk, lawyers lobbied state legislators for a $10 million increase in state funding for programs that provide aid to low-income Massachusetts residents.

Chief Justice of the Supreme Judicial Court Ralph D. Gants, Attorney General Maura T. Healey, Massachusetts Bar Association President Marsha V. Kazarosian, and Boston Bar Association President Julia Huston attended and spoke at the event, asking participants to urge their legislators to support increased state funding for civil legal aid.

The Walk to the Hill was co-sponsored by the Equal Justice Coalition, Boston Bar Association, Massachusetts Bar Association, and many local and specialty bar associations. The Davis Malm contingent was led by Dan Janis and included Sandy Moskowitz, who served as Chair of the Equal Justice Coalition for three years before stepping down in 2013, Evgenia Goryshina, John Lynch, and Michael Malm. Attorneys from more than 40 Boston-area law firms and organizations participated.
