Bartlett Legal Group’s 2019 Charity Selections
At Bartlett Legal Group, we believe in giving back through charity. We represent people whose lives have been forever altered by the negligent, reckless and intentional actions of others. We strive to protect the rights of our clients and to give voices to the victims of tragedies. In 2015 Attorney Bartlett instituted the Giving Back Program. Since starting this program over $50,000 has been donated to local charities. Attorney Frank Bartlett has pledged to donate a portion of every dollar earned in the representation of his personal injury clients to charitable organizations. This year’s primary charities are:
Giving Victims A Voice – In the Courtroom and the Community
I felt compelled to start my own personal-injury law practice after being disheartened by the way insurance companies and corporations schemed to abscond from their financial responsibilities in the wake of accidents and abuse. I didn’t want to save insurance companies millions, I wanted to save people’s livelihoods after they’d been destroyed by an irresponsible or malicious party.
Since 2015, Bartlett Legal Group and I have been committed to our mission of “Giving Victims a Voice.” We’ve accomplished this goal by seeking justice for our clients in the courtroom and supporting many charitable organizations throughout the community. One such organization that we would like to highlight is Colin’s Crew.
Colin’s Crew is a local 501(c)3 focused on bringing moments of comfort and joy to families affected by childhood cancer through various programs, including Meals4Kids, Snacks4Kids and Fun4Kids. Colin’s Crew was originally inspired by Colin Westbrook, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in October 2009, just days after his second birthday.
Bartlett Legal Group is proud to be the Platinum Sponsor for the Colin’s Crew Night of Hope which will be held at Il Monticello in Wallingford on March 30, 2019. For more information or to purchase tickets to this years event, please visit the registration page. We’d love to see you there!
We’ll be regularly showcasing great causes in the community, like Colin’s Crew, on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
Hope After Loss
Hope After Loss is a community of women and men who grieve the loss of a pregnancy or infant. Through peer support, burial assistance, education, and awareness initiatives, we provide connections, comfort, and care to those who have experienced the loss of a baby.
Colin’s Crew is committed to raising funds through grass roots fundraising efforts to support families affected by childhood cancer. Colin’s Crew was inspired by friends and family of a brave boy, Colin Westbrook. Colin was your typically two-year-old when he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, (“ALL”) back in October 2009, just days after his second birthday.
Colin’s Crew was originally formed to provide support to the Westbrook family. As Colin continues to do well, Colin’s Crew is planning fundraisers to assist families in the same situation as the Westbrook’s
Over $20,000 was raised for Colin’s Crew – Thank you!
