TYSONS CORNER, VA.—Caitlyn Jenner has put transgender issues in the spotlight this week. Among those issues are challenges in getting the proper legal documents needed to establish a new identity.
Womble Carlyle is supporting the Association of Corporate Counsel National Capital Region Chapter and Whitman-Walker Health Legal Services in a pro bono project to aid transgender citizens. Through the project, attorneys and paralegals will provide pro bono services to persons who need assistance preparing the paperwork to change their names and gender markers on identity documents and in other legal records.
An initial training clinic took place June 2nd at Womble Carlyle’s Northern Virginia office. Moving forward, participants will work in teams to assist clients.
