It's no accident that Waller is a leading law firm in our commitment to public service. We strive to make the world a better place to live and work. The firm regularly participates in fund-raising efforts, and in offering our services to several organizations, including the American Heart Association, Habitat for Humanity and the United Way of Metropolitan Nashville.
In addition, four charities are singled out each year to be the recipient of year-long fundraising efforts at the firm. Waller's unique policy on giving encourages community support through a donation matching program.
Waller has been singled out as the only law firm among the top 25 largest contributors to the United Way of Metropolitan Nashville. The firm and its employees have contributed more than $1.5 million to the United Way over the years. We have received numerous awards from the organization for our support of its efforts.
The Nashville Flood of 2010 displaced thousands of residents, flooded hundreds of businesses, and elicited a profound demonstration of Waller's spirit of service. The firm participated in Bar Association-led programs, ran its own legal clinics for employees of clients, set up a fund for flood victims, and offered refuge to clients who were displaced.
