Making a Difference
The best contributions are those that empower people to help themselves.
Our philanthropic goal is to foster economic development in the greater New Orleans region and to help bridge the gap between people’s available resources and their hopes and dreams. Our desire is a personal one: we are grateful for the unparalleled growth and success we have attained over the past decade, and we embrace the opportunity to give back to the community in which we have built our firm. Following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, we are more committed than ever to helping our community rebuild and to restoring the possibility of this great region.
We are particularly proud of our efforts with the New Orleans Charter Schools Foundation. The New Orleans Charter Schools Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that sponsors the charter for McDonogh City Park Academy. The firm also has a partnership with “Save Nola” and Habitat for Humanity. Many firm attorneys have spent a Saturday building houses with Habitat for Humanity in the Upper Ninth Ward of New Orleans in a development called the Musicians’ Village.
Our attorneys actively serve on dozens of boards of directors, frequently assuming leadership responsibilities in key committees. Community service organizations that benefit from our active involvement include:
American Heart Association
Children’s Hospital of New Orleans
Habitat for Humanity
National Brain Tumor Foundation
New Orleans Jewish Community Center
New Orleans Museum of Art
New Orleans Speech & Hearing
Ogden Museum of Art
St. Vincent de Paul Society
Touro Infirmary Foundation
United Way of Greater New Orleans
Young Leadership Council
We’re involved with the New Orleans Pro Bono Project, representing clients in need in a wide variety of areas and taking part in the project’s “Volunteer Lawyers of the Day” program. The firm is an annual patron of the Justice For All Ball.
Firm partners have served, or presently serve, as Adjunct Assistant Professors at the Tulane Law School and Loyola Law School, lecturing in various substantive law areas. Additionally, firm members are active in the the Tulane University Alumni Association , the LSU Foundation and Loyola Law Alumni.
