Strengthening the community

As a law firm with multiple locations, we have a tremendous opportunity to support and strengthen the places we call home. We use our resources to support justice, empower local businesses and individuals, and serve as a catalyst for innovation within our local community:

  • In 2023, we started engaging in the NCBF’s NC Free Legal Answers “Empower Hour” answering civil legal questions for qualifying users.
  • In 2020, 25 attorneys trained and volunteered with Legal Aid NC to help prevent evictions due to COVID-19.
  • Our attorneys, paralegals and staff support Friends of the Wake County GAL Holiday Project in Raleigh.
  • Cranfill Sumner attorneys regularly volunteer for the North Carolina Bar Association’s 4ALL Statewide Service Day, providing free legal information and referral resources to the public.
  • Several attorneys, including Benton Toups and Janelle Lyons, support their communities by serving as town attorneys for North Carolina municipalities.
  • Our attorneys, paralegals, and administrative staff regularly serve on boards of nonprofit organizations, including Transitions Life Care / Hospice of Wake County, Community Building Initiative in Charlotte, Triangle Literacy Council, the Carousel Center, and Young Black Lawyers of Charlotte.
