A Commitment to Community
We extend the same commitment to giving back to the community as we do toward meeting clients’ needs and providing superior legal services. We strongly believe in community service and charitable contributions and our attorneys and staff are equally interested and committed to helping those in need.
Such a commitment and social responsibility is part of our firm’s culture and is evident from the variety of community service the firm supports and in which its employees participate.
Our volunteerism and charitable giving encompasses sponsorship of youth programs such as “We the People,” which promotes understanding and discussion of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights, to serving on nonprofit boards, mentoring youth from disadvantaged economic backgrounds, leading and assisting in fundraising events, building homes and infrastructure projects in both the U.S. and in third world countries, serving meals at homeless shelters, and reading to schoolchildren. Much of our work is supported by The Foley & Mansfield Foundation, our non-profit organization.
In addition to the firm’s volunteerism and charitable giving, nearly all our attorneys participate in the firm’s Pro Bono Practice Group, which was officially established in 2003 in response to Minnesota Chief Justice Kathleen Blatz’s call to law firms to provide help to the community.
