Chuhak & Tecson marks Silver Anniversary with community service initiative
Community service has always been a hallmark of Chuhak & Tecson, P.C., and this year the firm is celebrating its Silver Anniversary—by giving back to the community. In tribute to its clients and friends, the firm has kicked off a year-long service initiative that reflects its commitment to the people and communities of Chicagoland.
“We are celebrating our 25th anniversary thanks to the hard work and dedication of our employees over the last quarter century, and the support we have received from the entire Chicago community,” said Andy Tecson, president and a founding member of Chuhak & Tecson. “It’s an honor that we have been able to serve our clients’ needs for 25 years, and we look forward to the next 25.”
Community service has been a core value of Chuhak & Tecson since it opened its doors in 1987 with 11 attorneys, their legal assistants, and a goal of providing exceptional legal services and responsible community leadership. The firm has grown 600 percent since then and now employs 65 attorneys and 75 staff members, including a number of the founding members.
Chuhak & Tecson employees volunteer for or contribute to not-for-profit organizations on a regular basis, and community service serves as a central component of the firm’s 25th anniversary celebration. Through Chuhak & Tecson’s yearlong service initiative, titled “25 Ways to Give Back,” firm employees will participate in 25 service projects assisting those in need. Project ideas were submitted and selected by Chuhak & Tecson employees, with a goal of completing an average of two projects per month.
The firm selected a diverse range of community service activities designed to enable all employees to contribute throughout the year. Projects include everything from serving meals to the homeless, to sponsoring clothing drives, to volunteering at a special needs school. More than 100 employees are expected to participate in the firm’s largest service project—packing food at the Greater Chicago Food Depository on February 22.
“We’re excited to roll up our sleeves and get involved in so many unique community service activities,” said principal Adam Moreland, who is a member of the firm’s 25th anniversary committee. “Thanks to the enthusiasm of the entire Chuhak & Tecson family, we’ll be able to reach a number of different groups in need of support—from local veterans to food pantries.”
Throughout 2012 Chuhak & Tecson will post regular updates about its community service projects on chuhak.com. Tecson encourages the community at large to join the firm in making 2012 a year of service.
“As we fulfill our commitments to these 25 service projects, we hope that others will be inspired to do the same,” Tecson said. “Working together, we can truly make a difference in the lives of those in need.”
