DTC has a long tradition of volunteering in our communities. Other DTC attorneys have served in various town offices in the past as Town Moderators, Planning Board Members, ZBA Members, Economic Development Committee Members and countless others. DTC attorneys and staff take pride in our volunteerism serving the communities in which we live and work. Pictured is Sharon Somers with Town Clerk, Andrea Condon with the 1898 Wooden Ballot Box.
