WASRG is pleased to welcome the District of Columbia's second independently-elected attorney general Brian Schwalb as the speaker at our November 9 Luncheon! We'll be dining at Joe's in downtown DC - register today to join us!
Attorney General Schwalb has committed his legal career to using the law in service of others, advocating for what matters most to the people and organizations he represents. Brian is a third-generation Washingtonian, committed to fighting for D.C., advancing the public interest, and ensuring that the law works to make the District safer, healthier, and more equitable for all who live and work here.
After graduating from Duke University and Harvard Law School, and completing a two-year judicial clerkship, Brian served as a trial attorney in the Tax Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. He later entered private practice representing clients in a multitude of high stakes matters including advocating for people injured by excessive, unconstitutional police force, defrauded out of their assets, and fighting for their lives on death row.
Brian is a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and is an experienced law firm leader, having served as Venable’s firm-wide Vice Chairman and then as the Partner-in-Charge of Venable’s D.C. office. He has also volunteered his time, legal services, leadership, and mentorship to organizations dedicated to enhancing D.C.’s justice system, mentoring D.C. Public School students, and reducing the local impact of HIV/AIDS. Brian is also an active supporter of cancer treatment and prevention, Holocaust education, and has served as an officer and trustee of his synagogue.
