Community Outreach

At Tucker Ellis we encourage a culture of community involvement, and, as both individuals and as a firm, we strive to be good citizens and neighbors in the communities in which we work and live. As a firm, we are engaged in ongoing efforts to support local, regional, and national organizations.

Tucker Ellis Day
Each year, to commemorate the anniversary of our firm founding on July 16, 2003, we celebrate “TE Day”. On this day, our offices are closed and our partners, counsel, associates and staff choose how to spend the day helping those in need. Everyone in the firm is encouraged to use the time to do something extraordinarily meaningful for them. Groups are organized and supplies are gathered for firm-sponsored volunteer activities, and employees are encouraged to spend time with organizations and causes that are personally near and dear to them.

Activities are wide ranging and can often include preparing care packages for our troops overseas; reading to sick children in an outpatient pediatric unit; visiting the elderly; cleaning up a local park; painting and planting; hosting a lunch at a low-income senior home; collecting and donating clothes to a battered women’s shelter; serving meals to the elderly and homeless; and donating blood to the American Red Cross.

Pro Bono
We also have an active pro bono practice that includes both trial and transactional work. We have a local presence in each of our offices. At Tucker Ellis, we believe that pro bono work should make a difference both for the individual and the organization. We encourage our attorneys to find the right opportunity for them.
