Make a Difference

Sometimes it’s difficult to envision the impact
your donation can make, but all funding
through the Foundation will have an impact.
Your support will strengthen women and
children’s lives in the local community.

Upcoming Events



Your support will help the DWLA Foundation grow so we may support various charitable and educational activities assisting women and children in the Dallas metropolitan area and surrounding suburbs. Your donation will allow us to provide a variety of scholarships for women in the legal community as well as provide charitable legal aid for the public, assist in improving the delivery of legal services to the indigent, and provide services to the community that further the interests of women and children throughout the DFW Metroplex.

This grant empowered and encouraged me to invest in myself and my office…My most pressing goals have been to automate my new client process and to develop and prepare systems in anticipation of a flood of new clients. I’ve adopted the mantra to “work smarter, not harder”.
