Commitment to Community

Commitment to Community

At Lubin Olson, our commitment to assist others transcends the confines of our office and extends into the communities in which we work and live.  We understand that we have a responsibility to give back to those communities through service, philanthropy and pro bono legal work, as well as by adhering to ethical and sustainable business practices.

Our commitment to these values is exemplified by many aspects of the firm’s activities, including the following:

  • We support and have participated in the San Francisco Bar Association’s Law Academy and the San Francisco Unified School District’s Career Tech Summer Internship program.  Through these programs, we hire and mentor underserved high school students through summer internships that are designed to encourage intellectual curiosity and interest in the legal profession.
  • We support and participate in the San Francisco Bar Association’s Head Start Holiday Gift program.  Through the program, we “adopt” underserved preschoolers in San Francisco and provide them with gifts for the holidays.
  • We support and participate in the San Francisco Food Bank’s "Food From The Bar" program, which provides meals to underserved individuals and families. We have provided, both in food and cash donations, the equivalent of nearly 40,000 meals for about 500 families.  Our attorneys and staff have also worked more than 60 shifts at the Food Bank.
  • Our attorneys and staff collectively perform hundreds of hours of service each year for various civic, community and charitable organizations throughout the Bay Area.
  • We provide financial and other support to numerous organizations, including AIDS Legal Referral Panel, Bay Area Legal Aid,  Asian Law Caucus, East Bay Children’s Law Office, Glide Memorial, La Raza Centro Legal, National Center for Youth Law, Project Open Hand, Self-Help for the Elderly and the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation.
