CaseyGerry’s community involvement allows us to give back and bring positive, measurable change.

Community involvement on a national level during 9/11
During one of our nation’s most challenging times, CaseyGerry attorneys played a key role in developing the legislation and policies that led to Trial Lawyers Care (TLC), an unprecedented program which provided pro bono legal support to the families of the victims of 9/11 – enabling hundreds upon hundreds of families to better cope with the aftermath of this tragic event. The program, in which volunteer lawyers represented more than 1,700 families, was the largest pro bono undertaking in the history of American jurisprudence.
Whether the contributions are national or local in scope, our attorneys and staff work hard to make a difference – and to champion the communities that support them.
