Our Three-Year Commitment to Justice
From September 2019 to January 2022, Divergent Language Solutions provided certified translation services in Haitian Creole and French for a pro bono matter. Our linguistic proficiency enabled legal teams to access crucial information and communicate effectively with their clients, David Boniface, Juders Ysemé, and Nissandère Martyr.
The $15.5 Million Verdict
Morrison Foerster, alongside the Center for Justice and Accountability and Dentons U.S. LLP, represented the plaintiffs in their quest for justice against former mayor Viliena for his power abuses in Les Irois, Haiti. Throughout the trial, our translated documents allowed the jury to fully comprehend the magnitude of the atrocities committed by the defendant.
