Suits, Suits and More Suits!

Marcy McDermott of Aronowitz & Ford and Tony Ryan of Hogan & Hartson took time out of their busy schedules to collect donations during the DBA’s Annual Law Suit Days Oct. 16 at the Denver City & County Building.

More than 10 volunteers from the DBA YLD collected hundreds of suits from many very generous donors on Oct. 16–17 during The Annual "Law Suit Days." Members of the DBA Young Lawyers Division accpeted donations on the steps of the City and County Building, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day. Gently used professional clothing, shoes and accessories were donated to help low-income and unemployed community members dress-to-impress for job interviews. Many donors went to the effort of dry cleaning clothes and shining shoes — thanks! If you still have clothes you wish to donate, contact these organizations directly: Dress for Success ( for women’s suits; the men’s suits were donated to Goodwill ( The DBA YLD would especially like to thank Marcy McDermott of Aronowitz & Ford for her hard work in organizing the drive!
