Reach Us by Foot
From New Hampshire Avenue Northwest, turn onto Ward Place (between M Street NW and 21st Street NW); Ward Place only goes one way from New Hampshire Avenue. Turn right at the first driveway, just before the building with the postal trucks.
Our office is on the fifth floor of the brick building to your left. Simply follow the building around to your left until you come to a pair of double-glass doors, and follow the instructions by the keypad to gain access to the building. (Note: Our elevator is a former freight elevator.)
