Trial Lawyers of Washington, D.C. (TLA-DC)

The Trial Lawyers of Washington, D.C. (TLA-DC) was formed in 1955. The organization includes many of the top trial lawyers practicing in the metropolitan Washington D.C. area. The organization promotes individual rights within the civil and criminal justice system.
