A tradition of Community & global support
Every law firm understands the responsibility to support organizations in their community and around the globe. This practice dates back to the beginning of the practice of law and has always been an important aspect of the respect lawyers receive in their communities. At Amata Law Office Suites, we are not replacing the support lawyers provide community organizations, but showing solidarity with them and respecting the tradition.
If you have an organization that you would like Amata to consider supporting, please tell us a little about them below. Our team members get together annually to evaluate all requests and establish our gifts for the following year.
You can use the below tabs to learn about the organizations we have supported in the past and continue to support.
