Take Time To Give

For more than 60 years, the Mitchell Williams Law Firm has been giving back to charitable organizations in the communities where we live and work. We believe it is our responsibility to support our attorneys in their leadership roles with organizations that provide charitable, social, educational or cultural enrichment.

The Take Time To Give program was established in 2004 to celebrate our firm's 50th anniversary with the firm challenging every employee to donate 50 hours of their time to community service.   That year, our firm volunteered a total of 8,270 hours of service. 

In 2009, the firm began selecting a “primary” Take Time To Give nonprofit annually donating volunteer hours, pro bono legal services and a $25,000 contribution.  The Take Time To Give financial contribution has since increased to a $50,000 donation. In addition to the primary charity(s), the firm also supports over 100 charitable and community organizations throughout the year through sponsorships, financial contributions, leadership and volunteer service.
