Our client, a contractor, prevailed before the the District's highest court. Lily A. Graves, an attorney with Veda Law, argued the case.  The issue before the court was whether the District's consumer protection laws apply to an applicant applying for employment. Ms. Graves argued that responding to an ad for a job does not involve a consumer transaction within the meaning of the District's consumer protection law.  The District's highest court agreed.

Our client prevails in the District's highest court.

A law firm sued our client seeking $1.7 million in legal fees.  We filed a motion to compel the law firm to submit the fee dispute to binding arbitration as mandated by the court's rules.  After the trial court denied our motion, we appealed to the District's highest court.  The District's highest court reversed the lower court and ruled, for the first time, that mandatory arbitration between a lawyer and client over a fee dispute is constitutional. The District's highest court opined that a lawyer who voluntarily submits to the D.C. Bar gives up the right to a jury trial over fee disputes with a client.  Click below to read the decision.

In October 2014, The Wilson Firm will become Veda Law.  The word "Veda" pronounced \ˈvā-də\ means knowledge or widsom in Hindi. It's meaning aptly describes our approach to the practice of law.
