Giving Back

The character of our firm has developed through service to the communities in which we work.

Our firm’s interests, and those of our families, help inform our commitment to causes that make a difference in the community in which we live and make a living.

This commitment is observed in the HGS Core Values, and it is demonstrated by the hours of civic, charitable and pro bono work the HGS team regularly undertakes in support of others. In 2013, HGS enhanced its commitment to pro bono service by implementing the HGS Pro Bono Initiative. The HGS Pro Bono Initiative provides HGS attorneys with possible pro bono opportunities, facilitates placements, and provides both financial incentives and recognition for associates who perform exemplary pro bono work.  The mission and objective of the HGS Pro Bono Initiative is to benefit the community by providing legal assistance to individuals otherwise unable to access adequate legal representation.

Community requests to HGS are considered by our contributions committee.  If your organization has a particular need or opportunity for our support, please contact us at or 850-222-7500.

HGS supports a number of civic and
charitable organizations, including:
