Lifestyle benefits: Our Virginia office is in a beautiful wooded area in an impeccable building, which includes a gym facility used by many of our lawyers and staff. Many of our DC lawyers are glad to arrange client meetings in Virginia and escape the city. The firm as a whole, including Virginia, is made up of talented, friendly people who believe that achieving a healthy balance between work and family is a priority and that this balance makes us better advocates for our clients. Our young attorneys enjoy early responsibility and close and cordial collaboration with our senior attorneys. We are committed to our communities, perform pro bono services and are active leaders of various civic, charitable and professional organizations. Our firm is diverse and includes many women and persons of color who have risen to prominence in the firm and in the profession, with the strong support of the firm.

Significant changes in 2009: Addition of senior partners in nonprofit organizations and bankruptcy
