Community Service & Pro Bono

Zupkus & Angell has a history entrenched in community service. In 1977 founding partner Rick Angell signed up as a volunteer with Metro Volunteer Lawyers. Since then, Rick has represented countless individuals in a broad spectrum of cases, including adult guardianship cases for the past ten years. Rick is driven by moral and ethical obligations, both legal and universal, to provide access to the justice system to those who wouldn’t otherwise have it.

The second generation of partners has not wavered in their community service efforts. Zupkus & Angell and has committed to completing an annual community service project collectively as a firm. Everyone at the firm had the opportunity to submit a proposal for the firm community service project, and the favorite was voted on by the group.
