Community

At Higgs Fletcher & Mack, we believe in making an impact both inside and out of the courtroom. Giving back is a fundamental part of our firm’s legacy. Since our founding in San Diego in 1939, we have been dedicated to serving the communities of our attorneys and clients by participating in over 50 nonprofit and professional organizations throughout Southern California. From partner to paralegal, our employees form an extensive network of volunteers, numbering more than 140 individuals giving their time and resources to the causes they are most passionate about.

Our attorneys and staff members support nonprofit organizations in healthcare, social services, education, advocacy, sports, and the arts. HFM attorneys play an active role in professional organizations to establish best practices, build meaningful relationships, and gain insight on the critical issues facing businesses today. In addition, our attorneys provide pro bono services to numerous organizations and individuals in need of proven expertise and sound judgment.

In celebration of its 75th year, HFM pledged and completed 7,500 hours of community service to the greater San Diego community.
