GOOD LAWYERS. CHANGING LIVES: SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY

As a national firm, we recognize that the role we play in our communities is just as critical as our role in the courtroom. Our culture of service and our desire to make a difference in the lives of others is inherent in our firm and our employees. In addition to making financial contributions to worthwhile causes, our lawyers and professional staff use their skills to support various charities, nonprofits, and civic institutions through pro bono work, board service, and volunteerism.

Pro Bono
Burg Simpson is committed to offering pro bono legal services to those who need them most. Our attorneys go above and beyond the 50 hours of pro bono work we ask of them, which accounts for the more than 2,500 hours of pro bono service that Burg Simpson gives back to the community every year.

Board Service
Our trial lawyers also contribute their time and insight to the boards of various charitable organizations to further our investment in our communities.

Volunteerism
Finally, we believe the most important way we can make a difference is through our volunteer efforts. Above all else, we believe that communities are made great by those who give.
