It's too bad that one of the most famous quotes about this profession is "the first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers."
In reality, the legal profession provides an amazing amount of free legal representation to those who cannot afford it. We are far from perfect, but we try to do as much good as I can.
We have always handled pro bono matters. For example, Sara recently helped a young man challenge the Social Security Administration's denial of his disability benefits and has helped file an amicus brief in a high-profile criminal matter.
Sara is the current chair of the Governing Board for Legal Counsel for the Elderly, an incredible organization that provides legal services to elderly DC residents.
For the past two years, this firm has made substantial charitable donations to local legal services organization and participates at the highest (platinum) level in the DC Access to Justice Commission's "Raising the Bar" campaign.
