We are inspired by the memory of one of our founding partners, Wayne Harris, to be “good citizens” by making a contribution to the community that we serve. With this in mind, the attorneys of our firm are encouraged to be involved in community, civic, service and political activities. Our attorneys have held appointed and elected governmental positions and are very involved in many public service organizations. Their activities involve service clubs such as Rotary, various Chambers of Commerce, professional associations, charitable and public service groups and civic organizations. Many of the firm’s attorneys provide legal services and volunteer in many capacities to area not-for-profit organizations.
