Our firm leads a wide range of efforts to support civic and charitable organizations that benefit the members of the community at all levels in areas such as human services, the arts, education and government. We believe in the responsibility of giving back to the community, and contribute our resources to local, regional and national organizations. We encourage and support the efforts of our attorneys and staff to be active members of their communities.

As part of our ongoing commitment to support the community, the firm, our attorneys and staff do the following:

  • Serve as sponsors of organization events and fundraisers
  • Donate time to serve as board members for charitable and civic organizations and as advisors to various government agencies
  • Make financial contributions
  • Hold internal fundraising events for urgent disaster relief efforts and other identified needs
  • Participate in our Lawyers’ Retreat, an annual public service event dedicated to a single large-scale project
  • Donate food and money to a local shelter’s annual Thanksgiving food drive
  • Volunteer in a weekly onsite tutoring program for an area school
