Community Service Jacksonville
At Harrell & Harrell, all our attorneys both contribute financially and volunteer their time to the poor and disadvantaged, charities, churches and various professional bar associations.
In the areas of charity work and contribution, we annually give time and money to many local organizations, but our focus has been toward children’s issues, medical services and The Jacksonville Humane Society. Some of the charities we offer assistance to are:
- Guardian Ad Litem – Harrell & Harrell, P.A., strongly supports the Guardian Ad Litem office and its efforts to protect and advocate for abused, neglected and abandoned children on the First Coast. In 2006, Harrell & Harrell, was the recipient of the Community Child Advocate Award. The Guardian Ad Litem office presents this award to a person or business in the community that has substantially supported its efforts and impacted the lives of children in a significant way. Harrell & Harrell received this award not only for providing financial support to efforts aimed at helping and protecting children on the First Coast, but also for the time spent by our attorneys volunteering to further those efforts.
