Giving Back

Giving back to the community is one of Yankwitt LLP's core values. For the past decade, the firm and its attorneys have dedicated themselves to good corporate citizenship by serving on boards and committees of bar associations and community organizations and by participating in events that raise funds and awareness for various nonprofits.

The attorneys and staff at Yankwitt LLP understand that to be part of a community means not just to live and work there, but to contribute in a meaningful way. That is why, in 2019, the firm will be co-sponsoring the annual Light the Night event, an annual fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. More information will be available soon on the firm website.

Russell Yankwitt also has assumed additional leadership roles within the legal community this year. He will be chairing the Federal Bar Council, Winter Bench and Bar Conference in Hawaii in February, and is co-hosting the Legal Services of Hudson Valley Equal Access to Justice Dinner on April 9, 2019.

Examples of volunteer organizations in which the firm is involved include:

  • America Association for Justice
  • Boys and Girls Club of Atlantic City
  • Cornell University Hillel
  • Federal Bar Council
  • Legal Services of the Hudson Valley
  • Temple Israel Center
  • The Play Group Theatre
