One of our firm’s core values is social responsibility. The growth and success of our firm is meaningless if we do not use what we have learned to help our community. Starting in Spring 2006, we will be launching a campaign in association with TeachSafe, a non-profit organization, to share our collective knowledge with others in order to prevent injury and encourage safety. As a personal injury firm, we deal with injured people every day and know a lot about the hardships they face. While not all accidents are preventable, we feel an obligation to do what we can to help people avoid injury in their lives. In addition to our safety campaign, the attorneys and staff in our firm give their time and resources to better the community.
Here are some highlights:
