DC Affordable Law Firm (“DCALF”) was founded in 2015 with the singular mission of providing high quality, affordable legal services to DC residents with unmet legal needs who do not qualify for free legal aid, but are unable to pay prevailing legal rates. DCALF fills a sizeable void in the District’s civil legal services landscape as the only nonprofit legal service provider in the District of Columbia exclusively focused on serving the more than 100,000 modest-means DC residents living 200-400% above the Federal Poverty Level. Additionally, DCALF provides extensive pro bono representation to members of the immigrant community and is a partner in the Family Law Assistance Network (“FLAN”), an initiative designed to link pro se litigants with limited-scope legal representation and assistance. Since 2015, DCALF has represented approximately 670 clients in over 1,000 matters, we continue to receive a steady flow of referrals from the Court, members of the community, and other legal service providers.
