While proud of our accomplishments in the courtroom, the lawyers of Matthews Eastmoore recognize that the practice of law involves public service beyond the courthouse doors. That’s why, to mark our 25th year anniversary, the firm is undertaking 25 acts of kindness. For over two decades, the attorneys and staff at Matthews Eastmoore have individually built strong relationships with local non-profit organizations, such as United Way, The Haven, and the Selby Foundation. We decided our 25th Anniversary was a great time to celebrate not only our professional success, but also all the good work we have done and will continue to do in our community.
