Legal Leadership in the Community
FRB’s attorneys are active members of our bar and community associations, and we work to better our communities through charitable giving, sponsorships, and active leadership at the board level. Many FRB attorneys are involved in or serve in leadership roles in governmental bodies, nonprofits, service organizations, and higher education institutions. Additionally, our attorneys consistently author educational articles and presentations for publications, webinars, and events and share their knowledge and resources to improve the quality of life in the communities where we work and live.
FRB is dedicated to helping deserving individuals and communities. Our firm’s commitment to providing a wide range of capabilities and working collaboratively to simplify interdisciplinary matters extends to our pro bono efforts. Similarly, the variety of pro bono cases we handle is as broad as the needs of the areas in which we practice. Our firm is proud to provide free legal advice and counsel, and even hands-on assistance through pro bono services.
