The Project

Drake enforced the right of low-wage workers to receive unemployment insurance after a job loss in the District of Columbia. Additionally, Drake advocated with the client community for effective implementation of recent changes in D.C. law to benefit low-income claimants.

Successful public interest lawyering requires collaborative client relationships and a dedication to our clients' goals both inside and outside the legal system.
