At M.C. Thomas & Associates, PC, we care about the community in which we serve. This is more than just a “job” to us. It is an opportunity for us to make a difference, not just in the lives of our clients--which is our first priority--but also, in the community in which we live, work and serve. Our “work” does not end at the end of the workday. Doing exceptional work, while positively impacting the world around us is not optional. As leaders in this field, we believe it’s our responsibility to empower those who may otherwise be unable to afford legal counsel with legal information critical to their success. It’s not just empty rhetoric; it’s our responsibility.
Because of these beliefs, the firm takes time out to provide pro bono services by volunteering at the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center’s Advice & Referral Clinic and teaching free family law seminars at area churches. We also volunteer at the local soup kitchen, So Others Might Eat to serve meals to those less fortunate,— something the firm founder, Michelle, instituted while in law school at The George Washington University, and continues to enjoy to this day, among other engagements to serve.
Equally important is our commitment to the legal community and local and national bar associations, where we lead and are influencers in the profession. Firm founder, Michelle C. Thomas, has been appointed to a number of Boards, including the Women’s Bar Association of D.C. Foundation and the D.C. Bar’s Nominations Committee. Additionally, she has served as an elected Chair of the D.C. Bar’s Practice Management Service Committee, and has also served as elected President of the voluntary bar association, GWAC. Most recently, Michelle was elected by more than 3,000 of her colleagues to the D.C. Bar Board of Governors to help lead the more than 100,000 members of the Bar. For these reasons, Michelle is a recognized leader among her peers and orients her firm toward service.
If you would like to invite Michelle to speak to your organization on a pro bono basis about divorce, child custody and other family law matters, or sharing opportunities about charitable events and opportunities for sponsorship, please Contact Us today.
