At Cohen, Lerner & Rabinovitz, P.C., we know how important it is for lawyers to give back to the community. Our attorneys were each born and raised in Michigan, and we have chosen to make Metro Detroit our home. We want to see our communities, people, and local businesses flourish. That’s why we each choose to give back, sharing our knowledge and our legal skills with those in need within our communities.
Pro-Bono Legal Services: Paralyzed Veterans of America
Our founder, Attorney Steven Z. Cohen, is the son of a disabled veteran. He watched as his father struggled with a 100% service-connected disability. Now Mr. Cohen wants to do what he can to give back to those who, like his father, gave so much to this country. Mr. Cohen, and others at Cohen Lerner, provide pro-bono legal services through the Paralyzed Veterans of America in his father’s honor, and continue to do so since his passing, in his memory.
Passing on Knowledge to the Next Generation
Cohen Lerner attorneys understand the importance of passing on our knowledge to future lawyers and students within the local community. Attorney Joshua A. Lerner serves as a board member of Hillel of Metropolitan Detroit, an organization serving Jewish college students throughout Wayne and Oakland Counties. Associate Attorney Eric J. Gould teaches as a professor at Walsh College and in Wayne State University’s College of Business Administration. A number of our lawyers have been asked to speak in lectures at local and state bar functions, and to a variety of non-profit organizations. We know that by doing so, we help to enlighten the next generation.
Serving Religious and Non-Profit Organizations
When attorneys are good at what we do, we feel drawn to give back by serving on the board of directors for religious and non-profit organizations close to our hearts. Cohen Lerner attorneys serve on a wide variety of boards, from the Chaldean American Bar Association and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit, to the Scarab Club and the Detroit Historical Musicians Association.
Volunteering to Support Local Causes
Even lawyers aren’t always working. In their free time, our Cohen Lerner attorneys dedicate time every year to volunteer for charitable organizations that are doing good in our local communities. You may see us roll up our sleeves at the local YMCA or USA Swim meet, or volunteer for the Chaldean Adopt-a-Refugee Program. We want to be there to help when members of the community are in need.
Our work with such a wide variety of non-profit organizations and charities naturally affects the way we do our jobs. At Cohen Lerner, we believe in providing compassionate representation to all our clients. From large corporations to private individuals, we treat every client with the respect and dignity he or she deserves. Contact us online or call 248.691.2200 to schedule a consultation.
