John Rees was an attorney with the firm in 1996 when he was tragically murdered by two individuals who were later tried and convicted. John was very active in the United Way and, in his memory, the United Way designed a traveling trophy which is presented annually to the law firm that conducts the most successful United Way campaign. Factors considered in choosing the annual winner include giving and participation levels, and the visibility of the campaign. In 2011, the firm increased its giving by 82% and achieved a per capita giving level of $1,837.
This is the sixth time the firm has won the John Rees Award since it was created in 1996. We are honored to again have the efforts of our attorneys and staff recognized in this way.
