Washington Law & Politics magazine named IJ Washington Chapter Executive Director William Maurer a “Super Lawyer,” based on a survey of more than 17,000 active lawyers across the state. Each year the publication announces the list, which comprises the top 5 percent of Washington attorneys in more than 60 practice areas. Bill recently argued two cases in front of the Washington Supreme Court and is litigating several important First Amendment cases for IJ. Bill joins IJ’s other state chapter executive directors (Tim Keller in Arizona and Lee McGrath in Minnesota) in receiving recognition by statewide publications for their outstanding legal work. Washington Law & Politics also named the Institute for Justice Washington Chapter’s lawsuit challenging the government’s effort to use campaign finance laws to quash the speech of political opponents as a lawsuit of the year.
