On January 26th, Davis Malm attorneys joined over 700 lawyers, judges, and other legal professionals for the 18th Annual Walk to the Hill for Civil Legal Aid. The Davis Malm contingent was led by Dan Janis and included Pat Clendenen, Tom Fitzpatrick, Sandy Moskowitz and John Lynch.

One of the largest lobbying events on Beacon Hill, the Walk to the Hill traditionally draws hundreds of lawyers to the State House to request their legislators’ support for civil legal aid funding. This year, the Equal Justice Coalition’s legislative funding campaign called on state lawmakers to support a $5 million increase in the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation (MLAC) line item in the Fiscal Year 2018 state budget. The Walk to the Hill is sponsored by the Equal Justice Coalition, a collaboration of the Massachusetts Bar Association, Boston Bar Association, and the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation.
