Burnett & Williams

Community

Burnett & Williams is deeply committed to serving the communities we live in, and the Ampersand Pantry Project is just one small way's that we can give something back to our neighbors and friends.

As one of Virginia’s oldest and most experienced Personal Injury law firms, Burnett & Williams has a long history of working to strengthen civic life in the Commonwealth and support local institutions in the communities we serve.

AMPERSAND PANTRY PROJECT

The Ampersand Pantry Project was created by Peter Burnett to provide help to Northeast Leesburg neighborhood residents unexpectedly finding themselves in need of food and other personal essentials. During the COVID-19 shutdown, Ampersand provided over 130,000 lunches to those in need no questions asked, 7 days a week. The project also distributes fully cooked Thanksgiving meals to stressed neighbors and puts on an Angel Tree gift distribution at Christmastime.

 

The Ampersand Pantry Project South, supported by Jim Williams, also began during the pandemic to provide lunches for those in the Hopewell community suffering from food insecurity.

Auto Insurance

We see far too many cases where insurance coverage is woefully inadequate. Fortunately, there are simple, inexpensive ways this can be avoided. Read some tips from Peter C. Burnett to make sure you are protected.

 

We are happy to discuss your auto insurance circumstances with you at any time for no charge. Or, call us to schedule an insurance presentation for your business or organization.

SUPPORT FOR
VETERANS

Inspired by the grit, honor, and selfless sacrifice of our nation’s military veterans, Burnett & Williams collaborates annually with local venues to co-host fundraiser/awareness events for our veterans. These events feature a number of local, veteran-oriented organizations, such as the American Legion, VFW, Heroes on the River, Combat Veterans Alliance, and more. Stay tuned to our Blog for more about the great organizations, venues, food vendors, and musical acts that come together for a great cause.

Ampersand award

So important that it was once the 27th letter of the alphabet, the ampersand is at the core of Burnett & Williams principles. Our success on behalf of injured clients is, in large part, the result of teamwork, partnering, crowd sourcing, and otherwise connecting diverse ideas. Likewise, successful community improving strategies often connect and leverage the diverse talents of committed and talented citizens. We like to think of the ampersand as standing for the success of you AND me, as opposed to the success of you OR me. Using this award as a symbol of our appreciation, we recognize and thank those that share and practice the ampersand approach to success, particularly when it benefits the community.

Service on
Community Boards

Many of our Burnett & Williams attorneys serve on various community legal boards. For example, Attorney Matt Bass serves on the board of Blue Ridge Legal Services, and Attorney Don Culkin is a board member of Legal Services of Northern Virginia. Jim Williams is a board member and legal expert for the Richmond Airport Commission and Huguenot Commons.

Charity Support
and Sponsorships

Our team at Burnett & Williams appreciates many groups who dedicate themselves to making the community a better place. We channel a portion of any referral fee to a number of local charities, and also act as sponsors for local events benefiting community growth and well-being.
