The Law Firm

Civic and Community Involvement

Paley Rothman has been a mainstay in the community for more than 40 years, and we understand that our role here goes deeper than servicing our clients. As a prominent business in Montgomery County, we feel it is our duty to give back to the community in any way we can. A number of our employees consistently volunteer at local soup kitchens, charitable organizations, do pro bono work and are on the boards of several county institutions.

Whether we are throwing on jeans and serving up hot meals to the homeless, running coat drives to help those in need in the winter, or putting together a team to raise money for a good cause, serving others is at the heart of our firm. At Paley Rothman, we know that it is not only important, but necessary to remain committed to the community.

Some of the organizations our attorneys and staff are involved with include:
