CAUSES

team huddle handsBellatrix PC is a service business.

That means we exist to serve. We serve our clients. We serve our communities.

Law firms don’t have to be evil. Our profession gets a bad rap. And some of it is deserved. But the purpose of lawyers is to help people. It is to help people meet their financial and business goals. It is to help people when they are in trouble. It is to safeguard life, liberty and property. Sometimes we serve best as wise counselors. Sometimes we serve best as fierce warriors. But even in the nastiest lawsuit, Bellatrix lawyers are agents for good.

Bellatrix PC stays mindful of our service ethic by supporting charities, volunteering in our communities, and doing pro bono legal work for the poor and for non-profits. Here are some of the causes we support.

100% of profits provide clean water and education - Three Avocados Lawyers drink a lot of coffee. So we turned this business expense into something we can feel good about. We get our coffee from a Saint Louis charity called Three Avocados, Inc. They autoship it straight to our offices. Every bag we buy results in water filters and wells being built in poor villages in Uganda. Next time you are in our office, try a cup! Or better yet, click on the picture and join us in making our daily coffee habit also a daily do-good habit.

Causes Team Bellatrix will be working on this year.

Every year, each staff member at Bellatrix picks a charity for the firm to support as a team. Our goal is for each office to do something charitable at least once every month. These are our picks for 2015.

Music and Memory

Music and Memory is the charity sponsored by attorney Melissa Engle. They give the gift of music to people struggling with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Music helps reconnect these individuals to the world by triggering memory. Bellatrix PC is collecting used iPods to donate.

National MS Society

Attorney Ross Poole picked National MS Society as his charity project this year. They provide support and education for those with MS and their families, as well as fund research. Ross is walking in a 3-day, 50 mile walk starting on September 25, 2015 in San Diego. The staff of Bellatrix PC’s San Diego office is lending volunteer support to the walkers.
