Richards Kibbe & Orbe LLP attorneys Emily Kelley, Jamie Schafer and Meghan Leibold Lidster have been named to the 2018 Capital Pro Bono High Honor Roll 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 "As Chief Judges, we are acutely aware of the severe hardships faced by indigent individuals who all too often must represent themselves in proceedings in the DC Courts, often when the opposing party is represented. We salute you for using your talents and expertise to help those unable to afford an attorney, to ensure that they too have equal access to justice. Your compassion and dedication, as evidenced by your pro bono service, have helped to level the playing field."
