Community Involvement

“No one has ever become poor by giving.”

— Anne Frank

There are partnerships that make sense for your organization that are usually driven by the desire to maximize exposure, resources and financial profits. And then there are partnerships that are driven by the needs of the community. Oftentimes, these are connections whose profits cannot be measured on a numeric scale, but rather by the positive effects they have on the community and, more importantly, on the lives they affect. To that end, we take a great deal of pride in our community partnerships and recognize the supreme importance of giving back. 

While we respect, support, and encourage all associations with the pursuit of bettering the lives of our peers, we have a deep attachment to our roots here in Chicago. A community rich with diversity, culture, and history, we strive to preserve these attributes that make Chicagoland the place we proudly love to call home. If you are an organization within our Chicago neighborhoods or surrounding areas, please reach out to us for partnerships, volunteers, or any involvement that may help with community outreach. We would love to hear from you!

  • “The decision to leave my former firm was difficult, but the thought of conducting a job search in Chicago while continuing to practice in Indianapolis was simply overwhelming. Fortunately, I was referred to Alan Rubenstein by a friend. Alan’s knowledge of the Chicago legal market and the different cultures within various law firms was invaluable. The information and resources Alan provided gave me a competitive advantage and allowed me to negotiate a superior arrangement, but most importantly, he helped me select the firm best suited for my personal and professional goals. I have since referred several of my friends to Alan and they have each had equally rewarding experiences.”
