Celebrate Tipping the Scales of Justice with DV LEAP!
Did you know? DV LEAP is the only agency in the metro DC-area, and nationally, that specializes solely in appellate representation for DV survivors. With each legal victory, we further establish the legal rights for survivors and magnify our impact.
In the first half of 2019, DV LEAP's two attorneys and our pro bono partners were involved in 27 cases across the country representing clients on critical issues such as:
- marital rape
- implied consent
- client credibility
- child custody and abuse.
Additionally, we have a case headed to the Supreme Court! For the first time in DV LEAP history, we have been granted certiorari for an international custody case addressing habitual residence.
We hope you'll join us on October 10th to celebrate our clients, donors, pro bono partners, volunteers, and staff who make all this possible!
