A strong commitment to civic, charitable and pro bono service is important for any law firm. At Taylor English, we also know that attorneys who are as committed to causes that matter to them are more well-rounded attorneys with balance in their lives.
Through community involvement, volunteerism, and civic leadership, our attorneys are committed to making a positive and sustainable impact on the world. Through both firm and individual contributions, we provide financial support, as well as board-level guidance, coaching, advocacy, and other forms of volunteer leadership. Together, the attorneys and staff of Taylor English have supported many essential community organizations with thousands of hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars-worth of support.
I speak with people outside the firm, and they’ll find out where I work, and they’ll often say oh I know so-and-so who’s on this nonprofit board. To me, I love hearing that because it means our attorneys are known not just for great legal service but also for their involvement in the community.Christina Moore, Co-Chair Real Estate Practice
Russell Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship
In June 2022, we launched an exciting venture with the Russell Innovation Center for Entrepreneurship (RICE). As a fitting tribute to the late Herman J. Russell, one of the leading businessmen and community leaders in Georgia, the Russell family created RICE to be a Black business generator with the mission to inspire and empower Black entrepreneurs. Currently, the center has 130 stakeholder companies with plans to be 160+ members strong with the 2022 class.
As part of the partnership, the firm will provide at least 1,000 hours of pro bono legal and business counsel to the RICE stakeholder companies. Additionally, we will provide multiple training sessions for Black entrepreneurs and host onsite office hours at RICE’s award-winning, 54,000-square-foot facility—the largest center of its kind in the United States.
What excites me most about this partnership with RICE is the potential for a meaningful, long-lasting impact on the Black business community here in Georgia. Our team is known for rolling up our sleeves and getting in there right beside our clients, and we’re excited to extend that level of service to RICE’s bold entrepreneurs.Dietra Crawley, Partner
