A Firm That Gives Back
Each year, the RedRover team donates time to a selected charity. In 2012, the firm selected Memphis Area Legal Services (MALS).
MALS is the primary provider of civil legal representation to low-income families in Western Tennessee. The organization helps individuals and families facing critical, situations such as domestic violence, mortgage foreclosure or eviction, wrongful denial of healthcare, predatory lending, or consumer fraud. MALS does not accept fees for its services, relying on contributions from individual and corporate donors.
The RedRover team has adopted Memphis Area Legal Services as its selected charity in 2012. The entire team offers pro bono services to this worthwhile organization.
The organization just entered its fifth decade with the same commitment and determination that inspired 30 members of the legal profession in the wake of Dr. Martin Luther King’s death to coalesce around a shared vision to establish an organization whose single purpose was to provide a means by which the legal problems of the poor could be addressed.
Even with a dedicated staff, it cannot meet the overwhelming demand for legal assistance today. The challenges are more acute because the widening of the “justice gap” is exacerbated by the economic woes of our time. The recent census reveals that more than 57 million individuals live at or below the poverty line, representing more than a 14 million increase since the 2000 Decennial Census. And 26.5 percent of Memphians live in poverty.
Donating to MALS lifts up our entire community. To donate to MALS, visit malsi.org/donate.php.
