LAS VEGAS (December 16, 2020) – Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie has been named the recipient of the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada’s 2020 Lied Award for the most pro bono cases represented by a law firm for the fourth consecutive year. The Lied Awards were created to honor and thank the Lied Foundation for the incredible challenge grant presented to the Legal Aid Center in 2000.

The firm also had two attorneys listed in the 100 Hours Club, a group of attorneys who provided more than 100 hours of pro bono services and five attorneys listed in the 50 Hours Club, who committed more than 50 hours of pro bono services throughout the year.
