On May 12, a letter on behalf of more than 160 of the nation's law firm leaders, including Tucker Ellis Managing Partner Joe Morford, was delivered to the United States Congress. Given the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on lower-income Americans, the letter requests a substantial increase in the Legal Services Corporation's (LSC) requested appropriation for fiscal year 2022. The letter reads, in part:

"Our local communities depend on the legal aid organizations funded by LSC, and our firms, in turn, rely on these legal aid agencies to increase the impact of our volunteer legal services. That is why our firms, as well as our individual lawyers, give generously to LSC grantees. We ask that Congress do its part by fully funding LSC and continuing its bi-partisan support of civil legal aid for our communities."
