If we expect the community to support us, then it’s our responsibility to reciprocate. It’s not only about giving money, it’s also about being a local business incubator.
Here are just a few of the ways we already give back, and intend to keep giving:
- We seek out and hire local community vendors whenever we can—and give hard-working newcomers our business.
- We have a summer intern program: a rare thing for a small new law firm.
- We donate to local organizations and initiatives such as the Cherry Hill Education Foundation, the Moorestown Friends School’s Camden Scholar Program, and Bishop Eustace Robotics Competition—to which we also provided practical feedback and pointers.
- We donate a portion of all fees that we collect to worthy, and high-ranked, charitable organizations. To name a few, we’ve given to the American Heart Association, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, and the Food Bank of South Jersey.
