Trombly & Singer is pleased to announce that partner Daniel Singer has been featured in a video regarding his work with the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center. Daniel has volunteered with the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center since 2014. Please watch the video below:
In May of 2016, Singer took on a case in which he represented a resident of Washington D.C. who was served with a legal complaint stating that her two daughters were not permitted to attend D.C. schools because she did not live in the District. In addition, they were suing her for over $100,000. However, the client had been a resident of D.C. for forty years. Attorney Singer was able to provide legal services through the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center and help this dedicated mom in her time of need. “I felt compelled to step in and try to help her out,” he said. Singer collected evidence of his clients’ residency and through the discovery process was able to have the case dropped entirely. It ultimately concluded in January 2017.
