6/22/2017
Adams and Reese was honored by the Birmingham Business Journal as a Corporate Citizen Finalist during the publications’ Nonprofit Awards Luncheon on Thursday, June 22, at Regions Field.

The annual awards recognize top nonprofit organizations and charities in Birmingham along with the businesses and corporate citizens that support them. The 2017 recognition marks the second-consecutive year Adams and Reese received distinction from the BBJ as the firm was also a finalist in 2016.

Adams and Reese is a proud supporter of many Birmingham-area nonprofits and others throughout the firm’s 18-office regional footprint. Beholding to a belief that the firm’s success is directly related to the prosperity and quality of life within the communities it serves, Adams and Reese encourages every attorney in each office to performance 20 hours of pro bono service annually to assist members of the community that need accessible, no-cost legal services. Along with “CA&RE” (Caring Adams and Reese Employees), an in-house pro bono program, the firm’s attorneys and staff members devote financial resources and thousands of volunteer hours to offer assistance to those in need through HUGS (Hope, Understanding, Giving and Support) philanthropy program.

Since the establishment of the Birmingham office in 2003, Adams and Reese immediately implemented a Birmingham HUGS program and maintains a growing list of HUGS partner organizations within The Magic City and surrounding communities. Included on that list are partnerships with The Lovelady Center, Junior Achievement of Greater Birmingham, My Sister’s Closet YMCA (Dress For Success), Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, the National Conference for Community Justice, United Way of Central Alabama, National Multiple Sclerosis Society (Alabama-Mississippi Chapter) and Camp Fire Alabama.

As a key part of the firm-wide pro bono service initiative in 2016, Adams and Reese established a new and groundbreaking fellowship program “The Adams and Reese Senior Pro Bono Fellowship” which offers senior attorneys the opportunity to effect change by devoting a significant portion of their working hours to pro bono ventures while they continue to serve clientele through traditional practice.
