At The Gori Law Firm, we strongly believe in giving back and being actives members of the community. Since our inception in 2008, we have donated over $3,500,000 to more than 300 local charities, organizations and nonprofits.
We have been advocates for organizations that support:
- Animal Rescue and Care
- Child Welfare
- Pediatric Cancer Research
- And Much More
In addition, our firm also has strong ties with organizations aimed at helping those diagnosed with asbestos-related mesothelioma and lung cancer such as the ADAO and the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation.
We believe that our mission goes beyond that of providing legal services to those in the areas that we serve. By aligning ourselves with meaningful organizations, we aim to improve the quality of life for not only the residents in our communities but also for our valued employees.

In an effort to lend our support during the COVID-19 pandemic, our firm delivered fresh coffee and donuts to healthcare workers at vaccination clinics hosted by SIHF Healthcare. We are incredibly grateful for all those who have been working tireless to help our communities throughout these times of uncertainty.
Teacher Appreciation Giveaway
Throughout the month of November, The Gori Law Firm invited participants to nominate deserving teachers and educators across the country for a chance to receive a $50 gift certificate. Nearly 200 teachers were nominated during the campaign, and thanks to an anonymous donation, 100 individuals were awarded.
The Gori Law Firm partnered with Roxana High School to sponsor it’s Dirt2Turf Project, which hopes to update the existing athletic fields through the installation of turf. Managing Partner Sara Salger, a graduate of the school, was eager to lend support to the project. Currently, the facility hosts a variety of programs and activities, including junior and varsity football, soccer and cheerleading as well as high school dances and the school’s marching band, the Shells. The changes to the field will improve student experience for years to come.
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.
