Richards Kibbe & Orbe LLP associates Emily Kelley and Margot Laporte have been named to the 2016 Capital Pro Bono High Honor Roll for their respective contributions of 100 hours or more to indigent clients and nonprofit organizations in need of legal representation. These RK&O attorneys were recognized in this top honor roll category by the District of Columbia Court of Appeals and the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.

The Courts’ Chief Judges, in an open letter recognizing the honorees, observed that "The District of Columbia is fortunate to have a truly extraordinary cadre of legal services organizations whose attorneys work tirelessly every day to make access to justice a reality. Because of the severity and urgency of the need, the dedicated work of pro bono counsel is simply indispensable to our civil justice system."
