: : : Even if you're not indigent, if you call them, they'll often give you great information over the phone. I used to work there; they know the D.C. laws inside out. Good luck!

Thanks Lynn,
about a month ago, L&T Assn. referred to these great buch of people. Hats off to them. Actually
the landlord has returned all but a portion of my money. Now, I'm in the
process of submitting a small claims against this slumlord! The D.C. law students have helped
me prepare everything they are to great for words to explain.
