We enjoy our role as involved corporate citizens and look for opportunities to give back to our community.
Our team has provided pro bono counsel for Hannah House, a faith-based transitional housing facility that helps women and children learn the skills necessary to break the cycle of poverty. The firm was honored for its commitment to provide free legal advice and representation to people who cannot afford a lawyer.
We are an official Columbia Green Business, dedicated to operating in an environmentally friendly way. In our offices we reduce waste, reuse materials, recycle and conserve energy. Outside the office, we participate in Keep the Midlands Beautiful and have adopted an area of Lady Street, where our attorneys pick up trash to make our city look good.
Our attorneys also play a major role in the nonprofit organizations in our community, volunteering their time and talents as to make a positive difference in the lives of others. From Big Brothers and Big Sisters to South Carolina Safe Kids, the South Carolina Philharmonic, Columbia College and the Columbia Museum of Art, we’re giving back to make our community better.
Celebrating 20 Years
In 2016, Sowell Gray Stepp & Laffitte celebrated 20 years practicing law in Columbia, SC with a yearlong commitment to service projects that give back to the community. With its theme for the year “20 Years Strong,” each of the firm’s 21 attorneys will participate in a service project that aligns with their personal causes and interests.
“We have a passion for service to our clients and the community,” said Cal Watson, managing member. “We appreciate the support we’ve received from our community over the past 20 years and we’re excited to give back in a big way this year.”
