"Portland, Oregon â€“ Barran Liebman geared up for the annual St. Andrew Clinic Race for Justice 5K Walk/Run this past Saturday to help raise funds for the non-profit that serves local low-income families needing legal representation.
More than 20 firm members participated in the Race for Justice, and the firm was a major sponsor which included the donation of air time on OPB radio for publicity. This race marked the highest number of attendees yet, according to race coordinators. The clinic was excited to see so many new faces contributing to the event.
â€œComing together as a firm and supporting our local community is a great way to kick-off summer,â€ says Ed Harnden, the firmâ€™s managing partner. "Barran Liebman is proud to support such a fantastic organization.â€
The St. Andrew Legal Clinic, also known as SALC, is a community-based non-profit organization that provides quality legal services, in the area of family law, to low-income individuals and families who might otherwise not have access to them. SALC opened its doors in 1979 and has served more than 35,000 individuals and families. All of the funds raised at this event directly help low-income families in Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas and Columbia counties receive legal representation.
