Keller Rohrback encourages attorneys and staff to give back to the communities in which they live and work. Firm attorneys and staff offer their time and professional expertise to assist with various non-profit organizations. Whether attorneys and staff participate by serving on boards of charitable organizations, volunteering time, making donations or supporting charities in other ways, the firm encourages their dedication to initiatives that improve and give back to our communities.

We also encourage our attorneys to pursue pro bono work. Keller Rohrback attorneys believe that all persons or institutions deserve access to quality legal representation regardless of their financial situation. To help attorneys facilitate this goal, the firm pairs charitable case requests with firm attorneys who possess an interest or a skill in the particular area of applicable law. Across the firm, attorneys and staff have assisted a variety of local non-profit organizations. 

In addition to our work in our communities, Keller Rohrback is also devoted to cultivating and maintaining a firm culture that honors the diversity of our workforce. Read our firm statement on diversity, equity, and inclusion here.

Charitable Contributions and Giving Programs

The following are just a few of the various organizations that attorneys from Keller Rohrback are involved with:

Legal Foundation of Washington
Our firm has a long history of service to the Legal Foundation of Washington (LFW). In 2015, Governor Jay Inslee appointed partner Mark Griffin (now retired) to the LFW Board of Trustees, and in 2019, he served as president of the LFW board. In December 2020, partner Juli Farris was appointed to the LFW Board by the Washington Supreme Court and will serve as LFW vice president and chair of the grants committee in 2023. Several Keller Rohrback attorneys are also involved in LFW's Campaign for Equal Justice, which provides legal aid to over 1 million Washingtonians who could not otherwise afford it. Since 2018, partner Laura Gerber has served on the Board of the Campaign for Equal Justice. Keller Rohrback attorneys are also enthusiastic participants in the LFW’s Associates Campaign for Equal Justice, a fundraising competition among associates at participating Washington law firms, for which the firm consistently ranks at the top of the leader board for associate participation, average associate gift, and overall contributions.  

Bainbridge Island Land Trust
The Bainbridge Island Land Trust’s mission is to conserve the natural environments of Bainbridge Island for the benefit of all. The Trust’s work protects and restores Bainbridge’s land and water to help preserve and build  endangered lands so they can remain protected in a changing climate. Partner Rob Crichton represents the Trust in litigation to defend conservation easements. He has provided advice and has been litigation counsel for the Trust in a variety of ways for many years. 

For several years, Keller Rohrback has hosted a Holiday Donation Drive for Treehouse providing essentials like warm clothes, shoes, and holiday gifts for youth in foster care. Attorneys and staff also enjoy an annual tradition of volunteering to sort and stock clothing and gifts at the Treehouse Store during the holiday season. Treehouse strives to create a world where every child that has experienced foster care has the opportunities and support they need to pursue their dreams and launch successfully into adulthood. With the documented success of its transformational, youth-centered program model, Treehouse now directly serves youth across Washington State, and has expanded its reach as a recognized thought leader in the field. Partner Juli Farris is an emeritus member of Treehouse’s board of directors, after a nine-year term as a board member, including Board President.

MAMA (Mother Attorneys Mentoring Association) Seattle
Keller Rohrback is a proud and ongoing sponsor for the MAMA Seattle annual luncheon, and partner Gretchen Freeman Cappio was a founding board member for the association. MAMA is a source of support for attorney mothers to learn and support each other while handling the issues they face in a supportive and forward-thinking environment. In June 2022, MAMA Seattle was awarded the King County Bar Association’s Friend of the Legal Profession Award, and they’re constantly expanding their resources and programs to encourage successful paths for mother attorneys in law, parenting, and in life.
