Several D.C. firms scored 100 percent in a recent survey on the equitable treatment of gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and transgender attorneys and staff.

The foundation looked at several criteria, including health insurance for same-sex partners, family leave policies, diversity and nondiscrimination training, and other benefits.
