“I am general counsel at a $72 million a year health care company. I handle everything that comes through the door. Because my practice is so varied, I am constantly looking at the District of Columbia Practice Manual to make sure that I am up to speed on many areas of D.C. practice: administrative law and agency practice, Superior Court, human rights, labor and employment, landlord-tenant, workers' compensation, real estate, torts, and even small claims.

As a member of six state bar associations, sometimes it is hard to keep things straight, but the Practice Manual always puts me on the right course in advising my client on how to proceed or letting opposing counsel know that I will be handling their complaint competently and confidently.”

“Working on the District of Columbia Practice Manual helped me stay up to date on the latest developments in DC employment law. I do not practice DC law as a federal employee but working on the practice manual helped prepare me to take on pro bono employment law matters in the District, including through the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center.”
