Harris Beach has a strong community presence through local offices in New York, but we apply our capabilities across the state. Our clients recognize the value in our ability to draw upon our legal and consulting resources from across the firm, whether their needs require regional, national or international solutions.
Strength in Community
Harris Beach cares deeply about White Plains, Westchester County, and other areas across the northern suburbs of New York City – places where our attorneys and staff live and work. The vitality of our communities depends on the engagement of residents, the diversity of citizens, and the support of organizations and institutions. Our firm makes community support one of our highest priorities and encourages attorneys and staff to do the same.
In recent years, Harris Beach has made donations and participated in various types of events involving non-profits and academic institutions. For the past several years we have been a financial supporter of Dominican College in Rockland County, a faith-based independent institution of higher learning and Pace University School of Law. We’ve also supported the health care sector with support of Westchester County Medical Center and Phelps Memorial Hospital.
Community caring requires active engagement. Our most valuable resource at Harris Beach is our people, and we believe our communities benefit when tapping into that resource. Our attorneys and staff serve on committees and on the boards of directors for corporations, hospitals, museums, shelters and other institutions, such as the Dominican Sisters Family Health Services, Eastchester Youth Council, and the Westchester Biotech Project. Harris Beach attorneys statewide also donate their time to take on pro bono cases, as we believe strongly in access to the justice system for all.
Many of the law firm’s attorneys and staff initiate grass-roots campaigns by coaching youth sports teams and organizing fundraisers for charitable organizations. Participation enables individuals to take ownership of an activity and allows them to pursue their own interests outside of the office. We also organize teams for fundraising walks and rally behind personal causes that may benefit families in need.
