At Jaspan Schlesinger, our attorneys believe in giving back to the local community and that it’s important to both “count your blessings and make your blessings count.”
We act on this commitment in several ways, including serving on the boards of not-for-profit and religious corporations, participating in and sponsoring events that these organizations host, and providing pro bono legal services to those in need.
Presently, our attorneys serve as officers and directors of not-for-profit institutions such as the EAC Network, Spectrum Designs, Family Service League, the Scarsdale Foundation, the Legal Aid Society of Rockland County and the Pat Cairo Family Foundation. Some of our lawyers also serve on boards of educational institutions, including the advisory boards of the Adelphi University Business School, the Suffern Free Library Association and the Touro College Board of Governors. Others serve on the boards of their local temples and synagogues.
We also participate in a number of charitable events. We are a proud sponsor of—and boast an exceptional team presence at—the Marcum Workplace Challenge, a 3.5-mile run-walk for the benefit of local Long Island not-for-profits. We also have taken part in EAC Network’s “Over the Edge” event, in which participants rappel down the Tower at Nassau Community College to raise money for Long Island children in foster care, senior citizens, and individuals dealing with substance abuse and mental health issues. The firm also has participated in United Way’s Stuff-a-Bus, collecting and donating much-needed school supplies to children of low-income families on Long Island.
