Miami, Florida, May 19, 2008 The law firm of Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod LLP was the presenting sponsor at this weekend's Third Annual Service Juris Day, hosted by Hands On Miami.
Attorneys, staff and the families of Bilzin Sumberg volunteered as part of the Bilzin Sumberg Cares initiative, an employee-based community volunteer program that was conceived in 2007 and sprang from the firm's commitment to the positive development of the community, to benefit the South Florida community.
Service Juris Day is a one-day community service project that engages the Miami-Dade county lawyers, judges, publicists, and other members of the legal community, in a meaningful service project. Dade County Bar Association, Young Lawyers Section co-hosted the event. Volunteers transformed the Juvenile Justice Center and Miami Dade Regional Juvenile Center by adding vibrant color, new toys and furniture, enhanced gardens and increased workspace.
