In the Community

At McAnany, Van Cleave & Phillips, our lawyers are like the people they represent.  We are citizens, neighbors, and parents who are interested in healthy and safe communities,  places to raise their families.  The attorneys and staff at MVP contribute their time and talents to a broad range of activities that benefit their communities, including neighborhood schools, volunteer social service agencies, and a variety of civic, cultural, and political organizations.  The firm also supports the efforts of a number of charitable organizations through sponsorships, monetary donations, and volunteered time.  Our involvement with the following organizations provides a small representation of our firm's commitment to community involvement:
