Ballard Spahr Attorney Joins Wave of Women Headed to Congress
Bloomberg Law covered the election of Mary Gay Scanlon—Ballard Spahr’s Pro Bono Counsel—to represent Pennsylvania's Fifth Congressional District. Ms. Scanlon also will represent the Seventh District in a special election to complete the term of Representative Patrick Meehan, who resigned in April.
Ms. Scanlon said that her role at the firm inspired her to run for Congress. She has overseen more than 500,000 hours of pro bono work, with cases involving education policy, voter access, discrimination and sentencing for non-violent offenders, and many other matters.
