An Extreme Need

A woman had turned to authorities in Montgomery County, Maryland, for help in finding a place to live with her 14 children. Felicia Jackson’s story was so compelling and her need so urgent that county officials decided to shoot for the moon on her behalf, and they called on attorneys in our Bethesda, Maryland, office for help. Working day and night, we accelerated a title transfer that paved the way for the chance of a lifetime for Ms. Jackson and her family, including the children she had taken in after her sister died of cancer. That family now is living in a dream house built and furnished by TV's Extreme Makeover, and we are delighted to have played a role.
