Contributing to a greater good.
Consistent with our mission, Greater Good and our attorneys are also making direct contributions to the communities where we work and live.
We continue to evaluate how we can best support the communities we serve. We welcome volunteer opportunities from our clients and other community service organizations. Contact us if you have an effort for us to consider.
We intend to update this page from time to time so that we are transparent about our community-supporting activities.
