You are at the home page of the District of Columbia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (DCACDL). We invite you to come in, look around, and hopefully find some information that will help you in your law practice.
Who We Are?
As more fully explained in our Mission, which can be read by clicking the button to the left, DCACDL is an organization formed by criminal defense lawyers in the District of Columbia that, among other things, promotes constant improvement in all aspects of the administration of criminal justice and the protection of the rights of individuals.
In addition, we work on behalf of our membership in all relevant realms, and assist them in the practice of criminal defense law here in D.C. We receive no outside funding, and we depend on dues and contributions to exist and prosper and provide member services.
