At Lukins & Annis, we understand that actions speak louder than words - and we work hard to do the things that make a difference in people's lives.
As a firm, we are proud to support a number of organizations and agencies serving to improve our communities. In addition, our attorneys and staff are involved in a variety of professional, civic, home, school, and church organizations and activities. Here are a few examples:
Our Charitable Contributions Committee reviews and approves donations quarterly. These donations are allocated to a variety of community organizations and events. Past recipients include:
VLP is a volunteer organization whose mission is to provide high-quality legal services to individuals with limited means. Our attorneys donate their time and serve on the board for the program. Our technology staff donates their time and expertise updating and maintaining the VLP computer system. In 2012, L&A was honored to receive the "Law Firm of the Year" award from the VLP for its dedicated service.
To meet a growing need in the community, Hospice of Spokane will build the new Hospice House on Spokane's North Side - which will include 12 resident rooms with all the special features available at the original house on the South Hill. It is located one block west of Division near the corner of Atlantic and Rhoades at 102 W. Rhoades Avenue.
Opening the new Hospice House will help more people in our community have the Hospice House experience. Having 12 more beds will shorten the waiting list and help hundreds more each year find the comfort and peace of mind that have become synonymous with Hospice of Spokane's original Hospice House. Even if that experience lasts only a few days - or even a just a few hours - it can make a tremendous difference for patients and their loved ones. Lukins & Annis is proud to provide financial assistance for this important community project.
Our attorneys regularly donate their services to those with limited means and also to important community issues.
