Our Commitment to the Community At-Large
BuckleySandler lawyers are public service leaders in the communities in which they live and work and across the United States.
In March of 2009, the firm established the Kolar Foundation of BuckleySandler. The Foundation supports charitable initiatives of importance to the members and employees of the firm, as a way of giving back. Funded by a contribution of a percentage of the firm’s profits, the Kolar Foundation focuses its giving to support and encourage members and employees of the firm who themselves are reaching out with their time and resources to help others in need. Any member or employee of BuckleySandler can apply for a donation for a cause that he or she participates in and/or supports.
Many of our attorneys also serve as directors of non-profit organizations that are focused on community service and outreach. For example:
- Partner Benjamin B. Klubes is a long-standing member of the Board of Directors of the Washington Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs, which represents individuals and groups with discrimination claims in a broad range of civil rights cases.
- Partner Jeremiah S. Buckley serves on the Board of Directors of the The Youth Leadership Foundation (YLF), a nonprofit organization that serves disadvantaged youth from Washington D.C.’s inner city by boosting academic performance while developing their character. YLF operates two supplemental educational programs for Washington area minority students, the Tenley Achievement Program for boys and the Program for Academic and Leadership Skills for girls.
- Partner Andrew L. Sandler serves on the National Board of Directors of the Cancer Support Community.
- Partner Christopher F. Regan served on the Board of the National Kidney Foundation for the National Capitol Area (2008 - 2011).
- Partner James T. Parkinson is on the Board of Directors of the Cleveland Park Historical Society.
