We're as passionate about serving our communities as we are about serving our clients. We have much to contribute—specialized skills, relationships and financial resources—and we embrace our opportunity to give back.
Many of our attorneys lend their leadership skills and legal knowledge as board members for nonprofits, such as the Step Up Women's Network in Los Angeles, the Lan Su Chinese Garden in Portland, the New York City Anti-Violence Project, the Bellevue Arts Museum, and the Tahirih Justice Center in Washington, D.C.
We also leverage our relationships to rally support for important causes. For example, together with clients we have built Habitat for Humanity homes, provided grounds maintenance and landscaping at a home for the disabled, and supported tent communities for the homeless. We also help connect other community leaders we know with organizations that can use their help.
In addition to personal contributions of time and money by lawyers and staff, our firm donates more than $1 million each year to civic and charitable organizations.
The following are just some of the organizations we support in our communities through pro bono work, leadership involvement, and financial assistance:
