Firm principal John A. Bourgeois was elected to the Board of Directors of the Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project (“DV LEAP”), a national non-profit organization that focuses on appellate advocacy to address domestic violence and injustices that victims face in court. DV LEAP was founded just over ten years ago by Joan Meier, Professor of Clinical Law at George Washington University Law School. DV LEAP protects adult and child victims of abuse by appealing unsafe and unjust court rulings; training judges, lawyers, and advocates on cutting-edge issues; and spearheading domestic violence advocacy in the Supreme Court of the United States.
