Carr Maloney is committed to providing quality legal services to those in most need of our help. Our attorneys also contribute to the community by working in local schools and nonprofit organizations, assisting the elderly, and providing for the homeless. The firm actively participates in a number of charitable events throughout the year including the used clothes drive for the homeless and area shelters, sponsored by Gifts for the Homeless, a non-profit corporation comprised of lawyers and staff from area law firms to serve area shelters, and the annual book drive for Turning the Page.
Legal Counsel for the Elderly
Carr Maloney attorney Kevin Murphy prepares wills and powers of attorney for elderly clients of limited means through AARP’s Legal Counsel for the Elderly in Washington DC.
Legal Assistance to Schools
Ed Krill provides legal services to the Don Bosco Christo Rey High School relative to its innovative work-study program. The School arranges for its students to take internships in area business and professional firms, and in return, the firms help with student tuition.
Services for Non-Profits and Religious Organizations
The basic corporate papers of Bethlehem House, a facility for persons with developmental disabilities, needed revision, primarily to meet the requirements for tax exemptions. Working with the Board, attorney Ed Krill revised the Bylaws to meet these requirements and to bring basic governance procedures up to date.
The Firm represented House of Ruth through conciliation at the District of Columbia Office of Human Rights in an employment matter. The Firm’s pro bono representation allowed the House of Ruth to focus its scarce resources on the women and children it serves, who strive to overcome homelessness and abuse.
Representation regarding Health Insurance Issues
Serious health insurance problems of a number of clients have been addressed by attorney Ed Krill, on behalf of individuals facing denials of coverage and, as a result, huge medical bills. The resolution of these situations has been largely successful based on Ed’s knowledge of ERISA and the health care field.
Connecting Schools with Law Firms
Mariana D. Bravo leads the firm’s participation with the Washington Lawyer’s Committee’s D.C. Public School Partnership Program, which matches area law firms with individual public schools in the city, to bring tutoring, mentoring, and other programs and services to thousands of children.
