At The Gori Law Firm, we strongly believe in giving back and being an active member of the community. We know that we have a mission to serve the neighborhoods that have believed in us by relying on our firm and its dedicated staff. By aligning with meaningful organizations in the communities we serve, we aim to improve the quality of life of area residents as well as our valued employees.
Supporting organizations that do so much good, both for our communities and the world, is a worthwhile endeavor that we will always pursue. Over the years, we have been advocates for organizations that support animal rescue and care, child welfare, pediatric cancer research, laborers and more. We’re sincerely grateful to be in a position to help. For example, because of our firm’s unwavering commitment, the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation, along with over 150 other local organizations (and a variety of worthy causes), have benefited financially. We have truly been touched by the stories of many of the groups that we sponsor, and we are always on the lookout for organizations that align with our core values.
Partnering with a local tap house, The Gori Law Firm hosts a lively annual Oktoberfest celebration in Edwardsville to raise funds and awareness towards the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation. For the past several years, upon the event’s conclusion, The Gori Law Firm has matched the proceeds raised at Oktoberfest with funds going directly to the foundation.
Saint Louis University
The Gori Law Firm was admitted into The DuBourg Society for making a $1 million charitable donation to St. Louis University and the School of Law Expansion campaign. Randy Gori was honored with the St. Louis University Silver Crown Award in acknowledgement of outstanding generosity by The Gori Law Firm‘s founding partners. This charitable donation will help support mission-based extracurricular experiences, financial aid, and funding for researchers contributing to discoveries in medicine, technology, engineering and more.
Land of Lincoln
The Land of Lincoln Legal Assistance Foundation is an Illinois not-for-profit corporation that provides free civil legal services to low-income persons and senior citizens in 65 counties in central and southern Illinois. The foundation handles civil cases and provides services ranging from telephone advice or brief service to representation in court or at administrative hearings. The type of services provided depends on the legal issues, case merits and staff availability. The Gori Law Firm was proud to support this organization’s important work with a $250,000 donation.
Mannie Jackson Center for the Humanities
With over 200 middle school and high school students from 23 schools in Madison County participating in this discussion and action-based project, “Conversation Toward a Brighter Future” is a solution to the negative discourse that is taking place across the country among national leaders. This program encourages our youth to “think outside of the box” and consider how we must treat each other to exist and thrive as a society, and The Gori Law Firm was happy to donate $100,000 to the Mannie Jackson Center for the Humanities for the project.
