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:

  • CSH Law attorneys regularly volunteer for the North Carolina Bar Association’s 4ALL Statewide Service Day, providing free legal information and referral resources to the public. In 2015, Dan Hartzog, Jr. served as the statewide co-chair for this event.
  • 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.
