Kenneth Berger $100,000 Donation to Camp ColeOur case results come from holding lawbreakers financially accountable for the harm they cause. But what happens to that money?

Lawyers have a reputation for being greedy. Sometimes the stereotype holds true. It’s disgusting to see, and it gives all of us a bad name. One of my firm’s core values is, “Restoring the good name of lawyers.” To that end, we try to celebrate our most charitable and courageous peers. We also attempt to give back to various causes not only when convenient, but as frequently and consistently as possible.

Every holiday season, I see the news about Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday, and all the other nicknamed days around Thanksgiving. This past year it dawned on me that my firm should start a campaign through which we gave every Tuesday, so beginning on January 7, 2020 and hopefully continuing for as long as the firm exists, we give a portion of the money we make from “case results” to worthwhile causes.

This charity was started because this couple, ❤️Crystal❤️ This is a charity that would definitely use any money for very good causes. Please consider them. This charity was started because this couple, Crystal (my daughter) and Craig Hewitt, Went through a horrible experience losing their two children in an accident and almost losing ❤️Crystal❤️Went through a horrible experience losing their two children in an accident and almost losing ❤️Crystal❤️. They decided to start a charity called Hewitt foundation to give back to the community. They give in so many ways but especially when they know of a family going through a hard time such as loss of a child or the child is going through cancer or something hard. They will drop the baskets off with food, games etc. They have given to the hospitals dolls and stuffed animals to give to children going through surgeries. There are so many things they have done and I hope that you will check into their website They usually have only one fundraiser event which is a 5K run at the end of June, but they do not know if that will even take place this year because of the coronavirus. I hope you will check out this charity and be able to give them some support. Thank you so much for reading this and thank you for all the good you are doing
