The Christie Center works with families and children in our community, helping them grieve the loss of a loved one. Their vision is that no one should grieve alone, and they offer support groups, peer to peer counseling and other resources at no cost, for as long as people need it. We have a lot of fun at FVF, but we are also familiar with grief. We have clients that are dealing with loss and many of our staff have been personally affected one way or another. We are proud to support the Christie Center and thank them for the important work they do in our community.
Team FVF spent an afternoon at the Christi Center doing some maintenance and mulching in the front healing garden. We also toured the house and learned about the exception work the Christie Center does to help grieving families in our community.
A special message to the friends and potential new clients of FVF Law:
FVF’s client contract has, for a long time, contained the following termination clause: “FVF Law is a values-driven law firm, and because diversity is a value we support, “good cause” [for termination] shall include any expression by the client of intolerance with respect to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.”
Now more than ever, FVF recognizes the global need to combat racism proactively, and to do so with more than just words. This firm was built on the mission of being better. Better lawyers. Better advocates. Better people.
We all know being better requires an ongoing commitment to learning, growth, introspection, and change. We enthusiastically embrace that commitment and hereby pledge to do more than just talk about it. Stay tuned on our blog and facebook page for more about what FVF is doing to back this important global effort.
In the meantime, we would respectfully request new clients who find their own views incompatible with this pledge to consider contacting another firm to handle their case. In any case, we invite you to provide honest feedback by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Josh and Aaron, and all of FVF Law
