Strengthening the community
As a law firm with multiple locations across the state, we have a tremendous opportunity to support and strengthen the state 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 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, and the Carousel Center.
