CLC Celebrates Covington's Tony Herman
The Children's Law Center held a special reception at Covington's DC office recently to honor Covington litigator Tony Herman and his commitment to pro bono. Tony's photographed with his son, Matt, and CLC executive director Judith Sandalow.
Judith first met Tony at a soccer field watching their sons play together. They bonded over their shared experiences as adoptive parents. After Judith learned about Tony's commitment to legal aid and closing the justice gap, she eventually asked him to join CLC's board. That long involvement culminated in Tony serving as CLC board chair for four years, a position from which he stepped down a couple of months ago. (We found him at CLC's annual Helping Children Soar benefit not long after.)
Covington senior counsel and former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue gave remarks at the reception. CLC also announced that several Covington attorneys chose to honor Tony’s service by establishing the Anthony Herman Adoption Litigation Fund, which will allow CLC to support more adoptive families with legal advocacy.
In addition to Tony's work with CLC, he's held board positions for organizations including the Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless, Washington Lawyer's Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs, and Bread for the City.
