QUESTION: What is your cause? Where do you volunteer? Whom do you help?
We remember the immortal words of President John F. Kennedy, Jr.:
“Ask not what your country can do for you! Ask what you can do for your country.”
You will find attorneys volunteering at the local, state, or national level on many different causes.
