BakerHostetler Announces Support for Legal Aid

Back

Legal Aid and BakerHostetler are working together to ensure children have access to school, since we all know education is a pathway out of poverty. The law firm of BakerHostetler recently announced a four-year $120,000 grant to Legal Aid, focused on Legal Aid’s education law work. Hewitt Shaw, managing partner of the firm’s Cleveland office, says, “We are pleased to be able to support this important organization.”

BakerHostetler has a deep and long history with Legal Aid: Newton D. Baker was among the founding leaders of Legal Aid in 1905. Numerous BakerHostetler attorneys have served on Legal Aid’s board of directors over the past 100 years. Hundreds of BakerHostetler attorneys have provided pro bono services to Legal Aid’s clients.
