We believe that every lawyer has a duty to his or her community that extends beyond normal office work. We have always followed a policy of encouraging our lawyers to participate in such activities. Our pro bono activities include serving as counsel to RAP, Inc., a successful non-methadone drug treatment program in the Washington area, participation in cases on behalf of the Washington Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights, and representation of clients in such areas as veterans benefits, employment discrimination, and immigration proceedings.
The firm also created and endowed the Jerrold Scoutt Prize, named in honor of one of the firm's founding partners. The Scoutt Prize, along with a stipend, is given annually by the D.C. Bar Foundation to the outstanding legal aid lawyer in the District of Columbia.
Rachel Trinder has worked as an aviation and aerospace advocate and consultant in Washington for more than thirty years, advising airports, air carriers, helicopter operators, financial institutions, manufacturers, suppliers and other entities on an extensive range of domestic and international aviation and aerospace matters.
