Community Support and Participation is Important to Us

As personal injury attorneys we see so many people at the lowest times in their lives. They are struggling to get through something horrific and life changing, and we work hard to try and give them back some sense of security.

Supporting the Committed Educators in our Communities

We see educators giving back everyday and want to honor their immense contribution to our community. In our schools, extra-curricular activities and churches, there are people really making a difference in our children’s lives. We would like your help in recognizing some of these Exceptional Educators.

Supporting Teachers – Now More Than Ever

“I believe its important to recognize educators’ contribution to society, especially during this challenging time. Next to parents they often have the most significant impact on our children”.

– Bob Giroux
