Washington, D.C.

The firm encourages all attorneys to find a way to participate in pro bono projects and community service. DWT is a signatory to the Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge and commits to providing 3% of its annual hours to pro bono. Individual lawyers doing pro bono work can earn billable credit up to 8% of their annual billable-hours goal.

Access to Agency Records Helps Veterans Get Benefits
In 2016, Burt BravermanRonald London and Adam Shoemaker of the Washington, D.C., office represented post-Vietnam War veterans in Freedom of Information Act litigation that sought access to agency records relevant to pursuit of benefits for injuries and illnesses arising from exposure to aircraft used for spraying Agent Orange during the war. The attorneys settled both cases and received attorney’s fees from both agencies. The favorable settlement aided in the successful effort to change the Department of Veterans Affairs’ stance on presumptive exposure to Agent Orange, resulting in increased access to medical benefits for veterans.
