About the Presidents Reception and the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center
Since 1993, past presidents of the D.C. Bar have hosted the Presidents Reception to honor the incoming president of the Bar and to support the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center*, the largest provider of pro bono legal help in the District of Columbia. With the support of our generous donors and dedicated attorney volunteers, we operate award-winning legal clinics, projects, and resource centers that serve more than 20,000 individuals, nonprofits, and small businesses
each year.

Donors of $250 or more are acknowledged in the Presidents Reception invitation, event program, Washington Lawyer magazine (distributed to more than 100,000 members of the Bar), and on the D.C. Bar website.

About the President-Elect
Geoffrey M. Klineberg is a partner at Kellogg, Hansen, Todd, Figel & Frederick, P.L.L.C. and a member of the firm’s Executive Committee. His practice focuses on the areas of administrative law and appellate litigation, representing companies in many matters before the Federal Communications Commission, as well as in federal district and appellate courts.

In his presidential year, Klineberg aims to build on the work of Esther H. Lim (D.C. Bar president, 2018-2019) and Susan M. Hoffman (D.C. Bar president, 2019-2020) in enhancing the Bar’s commitment to pro bono service.
