Van Ness Feldman's Keturah Brown was honored by the George Washington University Law School (GW Law) for her accomplishments in serving at-risk Washington, DC residents. Having recently been named a "Rising Star" by the Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless, GW Law honored Keturah in observance of Black History Month, celebrating the contributions of current students and alumni.
Keturah volunteered her time over the past several years, first as a law clerk and then as an associate, providing initial advice and ongoing advocacy to ensure that these vulnerable residents are treated fairly and have equal access to justice.
In a recent interview with GW Law discussing her work and achievements, Keturah said, "Public service is innate to me. It is ingrained within my moral fiber and produces an insatiable desire to provide assistance to others. With homelessness and poverty being rather prevalent within the District, it was only natural for me to serve members of those communities and fight to provide them with access to the resources they need, such as shelter, housing, and life-changing services."
