Each year, the judges of DC Superior Court appoint us to represent many hundreds of children who were abused and neglected or caught in bitter custody battles – a big vote of confidence in our tenacious attorneys who fight for the best homes for these vulnerable children.

Pediatricians, nurses and social workers in five community health centers turn to us to help them identify and resolve the root causes of their children patients’ health problems.

The Mayor, District Agencies and the DC Council all turnn to us to develop citywide recommendations that would ensure policies, programs and funding meet the needs of all District children.

More than 100 law firms partner with us on pro bono cases that allow us to help even more children who have been abused or neglected, are caught in custody battles, live in poor housing conditions, or have special education needs that aren’t being met.
