A Decade of Service

The DC Volunteer Lawyers Project gives not just hope but tangible resources to actually help survivors of domestic violence shift and transcend the legacy of abuse.

Read about the clients we serve, our volunteer lawyers and our valued supporters.

In January 2018, the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project reached a significant milestone; we celebrated a decade of providing high-quality pro bono representation to domestic violence survivors and at-risk children. Just over a decade ago, we started as a handful of attorneys who wanted to use their legal skills to make a difference. Today, we are an army of over 2,100 volunteer lawyers who have provided representation to thousands of domestic violence survivors and at-risk children. Read more here.

I feel so empowered having a lawyer. He thought he could just come in here and bully me. I am so grateful.
