As part of our firm’s mission to actively participate in the community, Dan Singer is a regular volunteer attorney at the D.C. Bar’s Pro Bono Advice & Referral Clinic, which meets on weekends to serve low-income D.C. residents. As a result of his participation in this public interest program, in 2016 Dan took on the pro bono representation of a District of Columbia employee who was being improperly targeted by the D.C. Government in a lawsuit in which the District’s lawyers claimed that the woman really was a Maryland resident who had unlawfully enrolled her children in DC public schools. After representing the client in civil discovery proceedings and strategically challenging the government’s case, Dan was eventually able to convince the government attorneys to drop the lawsuit against our client in February of 2017, nearly a year after taking on the case. Our client, who was being sued for thousands of dollars, was tremendously relieved that the burden of this unfair lawsuit had been taken off of her shoulders and eventually dismissed.
