On March 28th, DASH will hold its Allies in Change luncheon, honoring individuals who have supported and amplified the organization’s work to provide relief to survivors of domestic and sexual violence,through emergency and long-term safe housing, and innovative homelessness prevention services. We are doing a series of interviews of our awardees beforehand to share a bit more about them. This blog focuses on Andrew Lazerow, who provides DASH with legal support. Remember to buy tickets to the luncheon here!
DASH is happy to introduce Andrew Lazerow. Mr. Lazerow is of counsel in the Covington & Burling LLC’s Washington, DC office. He has extensive experience representing clients in numerous industries in alternative dispute resolution proceedings, antitrust class actions, securities fraud class actions, and complex commercial disputes. He litigates and tries complex matters in federal court.
Below are comments Andrew had about his relationship to DASH and to the District of Columbia:
I grew up just outside the city, in Bethesda, Maryland. However, I went to law school in DC, and lived in Adams Morgan for a number of years.
I have had the privilege of acting as quasi outside counsel to DASH for a few years now. I truly enjoy working with DASH’s executive staff to ensure that DASH operates safe facilities. It is obviously critical that victims of domestic abuse not suffer a second injustice. DASH offers that refuge, and I hope that my small part furthers DASH’s mission in this regard.
DASH is proud to honor Mr. Lazerow for his ongoing contributions to the organization.
