Throughout each year Hammerberg Lawyers provide regular donations to worthwhile causes within our community. In the past we have supported BC Children’s Hospital, the Canadian Red Cross, Kids Up Front, Make A Wish Foundation of BC and the Yukon and many more.
Our lawyers and staff believe in supporting our communities. We appreciate the perspective it provides us and the opportunity to give back to those in need. Our principles of giving back are not just limited to a firm activity. These actions extend to the personal lives of our lawyers and staff. Individually, we give of our personal time and money to help the community. Whether it’s helping charities, youth sports groups or other community organizations, we’re giving back. Visit our News page for updates on our most recent engagements.
We’ve put work into a number of worthy causes including Education Without Borders, and Pacific Coast Brain Injury Conference Society.
We participate in the Access Pro Bono Clinic’s Free Legal Advice-a-Thon, offering free legal advice to low-and modest-income individuals, including homeless people who may otherwise have limited access to traditional free legal advice clinics.
The Pro Bono programs raise awareness of the need for greater legal aid funding, increase access to justice in BC, and raises\ much-needed funds for the provision of pro bono legal services province-wide.
Each year, as part of Hammerberg’s annual holiday festivities, our lawyers and staff buy and donate toys and hampers to children and families in need.
Over the years we have supported several charities in this way including Starlight Children’s Foundation, The Province Empty Stocking, Canuck Place, the Christmas Hamper Fund and The Rise Women’s Legal Centre.
