Harris Beach lawyers engage in a variety of pro bono matters, assisting charitable organizations with pro bono legal services and representing clients who cannot afford an attorney in federal, state and local courts. Many of our lawyers’ efforts have been recognized by federal courts, the New York State Bar Association and local bar associations. Harris Beach also has a long and proud history of serving local communities through donations of time and money and believes the vitality of our communities is dependent upon the involvement of its residents and the diversity of its citizens.
Our dedication to our clients is reflected in our long and proud history of contributing to our communities. Our attorneys have always been active, serving on the boards of directors for numerous corporations, hospitals, museums, shelters and other charitable organizations. We provide sponsorships and financial contributions to many not-for-profit organizations and professional and cultural institutions in each of our communities and encourage attorneys and staff to participate.
Our people also initiate grass-roots campaigns by coaching youth sports teams and organizing fundraisers. Participation enables individuals to take ownership of an activity and allows them to rally behind personal causes that benefit families in need. Each office also selects organizations as “adopted charities” to support through firm contributions and volunteer time by lawyers and administrators.
Our most valuable resource at Harris Beach is our people, and we believe our communities benefit when tapping into that resource.
