Community Service & Pro Bono Work
Gibbs Giden honors the community by donating our professional legal services (pro bono) and partnering with organizations in sponsorship and support of select youth, health, human services, and cultural programs. Below is a list of recent events and organizations we have supported and the pro bono work of our attorneys.
Building for Good (B4G), connects volunteer construction attorneys with charities and nonprofit organizations with a construction law need. Since legal services, though necessary, can be a financial burden on a nonprofit trying to fulfill a goal and it can be daunting trying to figure out how to navigate the legal landscape B4G helps provide counsel to those in need. B4G helps nonprofits focus on their mission delivery instead of attorney fees.
Jason M. Adams has spent one morning a week serving as a volunteer Court Mediator in the Los Angeles Superior Court for the Los Angeles Department of Consumer & Business Affairs. Every case settled helps to clear the docket for a court system that consistently runs over capacity. It’s a great free program that should be considered by anyone dealing with a smaller dispute before going to trial. Drop Jason a line at Jadams@gibbsgiden.com if you’d like more information about the DCBA mediation program.
