Lawyer Denis Pierce puts his money where his mouth is and as a result, increases access to justice for those in need.
A partner at Pierce and Associates, he, along with his family, founded the Pierce Family Foundation.
While many individuals in our legal community give generously in support of our community's pro bono and legal aid organizations, Denis
is one of a more select group who have found a way to take their giving to the next level.
Through the commitments of his
law firm and the work of his
family foundation, Denis
has been making generous contributions to law-related charities in a way that transcends giving back.
