Washington Lawyer - July/August 2021 - 31

In Service to the Public
The D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center was a driving force in the
fight for access to justice, rallying the legal community
to help fill the critical need for civil legal services among
low-income individuals, nonprofit organizations, and
small businesses in the District. In 2020 the Pro Bono
Center responded to more than 20,000 requests for legal
assistance.
Collaborative efforts to address community needs were
particularly effective. The new Family Law Assistance
Network (FLAN) pooled the resources of the Pro Bono
Center, DC Affordable Law Firm, and D.C. Legal Aid Society
by providing advice and representation in family law

matters by phone, eliminating barriers to representation
presented by both the pandemic and by the indigency
of many of those served. More than 850 families have
received assistance since FLAN launched in March 2020.
The Pro Bono Center also worked with five sister legal
services organizations to establish the Landlord Tenant
Legal Assistance Network, seeking to address the needs
of an estimated 51,000 to 58,000 District residents at risk
of eviction because of the COVID-19 pandemic. To date,
the Pro Bono Center has served 3,167 pro se litigants in
landlord-tenant matters.
I was blessed with countless opportunities that
allowed me to get to where I am. So much of it was
due to mentors and people opening doors to me . . .
I feel the obligation to pay that forward.
