Giving Back

We look outward toward serving our communities and generating opportunity through volunteerism. Like the entities we serve, we are committed to public service, and we understand that legal decisions have impacts beyond the courtrooms and offices where they are made. 

Our core values reflect not just how we do business, but why—for the public good.  Meyers Nave maintains a firmwide policy and actively provides legal services pro bono as a way to make meaningful, significant contributions to the communities in which we work and live.  In order to encourage our attorneys to provide pro bono services, their work is counted as billable hours. The firm has an established Pro Bono Committee, which seeks to partner with nonprofit and community service organizations to provide much needed legal services.

Centerforce Youth Court

Several years ago, a former principal was instrumental in introducing the firm to the beneficial work provided by the Centerforce Youth Court (CYC).  We have continued in this tradition of involvement and participation with the CYC. Click here to read more about CYC.

The Living Room

Members of Meyers Nave’s Santa Rosa Office have supported and provided pro bono legal services to The Living Room for several years. The Living Room is a nonprofit organization that serves homeless and at-risk women and their children in the Sonoma County area by providing food, clothing and support services. The organization seeks to improve the quality of life in all areas of the human experience -- mind, body, and spirit -- for this at-risk population.

Meyers Nave provides pro bono services to the Davis Street Family Youth Center (DSFRC) in San Leandro. The mission of the DSFRC is to assist low-income residents of the Eden area and its surrounding communities to help improve their quality of life through short and long-term assistance.
