Community

At Lang, Richert & Patch, we believe that the practice of law includes promoting the betterment of the communities we serve. To that end, every year our staff members and attorneys choose numerous causes to champion as part of our quarterly Community Service Projects (“CSP”). Traditionally, our CSP have included backpack drives for low income elementary schools; food drives for local food banks; book drives for needy local libraries; and walk-a-thons for the American Cancer Society.

This year, the firm looks forward to selling newspapers to benefit Childrens’ Hospital Central California on Kids’ Day, promoting and donating blood at a blood drive, assisting in the maintenance of a no-kill animal shelter, adopting an elementary school, and walking to benefit the heart association. Most of the staff and attorneys at the firm grew up in this area and are proud to give back to the communities that have given them so much.
