Pro Bono

Carr Maloney is committed to providing high quality legal services to those in need. Our attorneys 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 used clothing drives for the homeless and shelters in the area, the Firm sponsors Gifts for the Homeless, a non-profit corporation comprised of attorneys and staff from law firms to serve area shelters. We also participate in the annual book drive for Turning the Page.

Here are some specific ways we “give back:”

Legal Counsel for the Elderly

Managing Partner, Kevin Murphy prepares wills and powers of attorney for elderly clients of limited means through AARP’s Legal Counsel for the Elderly in Washington, D.C.

Legal Assistance to Schools

Of Counsel, 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 for businesses in the area and professional firms, and in return, the firms help with student tuition.

Services for Nonprofits 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

Ed Krill has addressed a number of serious health insurance problems for Carr Maloney clients facing denials of coverage and, as a result, huge medical bills. With Ed’s knowledge of ERISA and the health care field, many of these legal issues have been resolved successfully. 

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.
