  • Legal Aid of DC Banquet

    Two weeks ago, I was fortunate to again shoot photos for the Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia’s annual Servant of Justice Awards Dinner. The 29th annual event raised $1.3 million to provide legal assistance to people who live in poverty in our nation’s capital.

    Honorees included Servant of Justice recipients Abid Riaz Qureshi of Latham & Watkins and Thomas C. Papson, a volunteer staff attorney for Legal Aid. Jahnisa Tate Loadholt, a senior associate at Alston & Bird, received the Klepper Prize for Pro Bono Excellence. Monica Jackson, president of the Terrance Manor Organized for Change Tenants Association, received the Partnership Award for leading her fellow residents in a fight against a landlord who had allowed their housing complex to deteriorate into unlivable conditions.

    DeMaurice Smith, head of the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA), introduced Querishi, a longtime friend and colleague.

    Founded in 1932, the Legal Aid Society is Washington, D.C.’s oldest and largest general civil legal services organization.
