Sheehan Phinney has a long history of service to our communities. Making a difference in the lives of others is one of the Firm’s top priorities, and we steadfastly believe that every successful attorney should be involved in community service activities. We encourage each of our lawyers to become involved in civic activities, and we can proudly say that our attorneys are not only some of the most talented and brilliant legal minds in the country, but that they also serve as valued volunteers, honored members of community boards, and elected or appointed local and state government officials. Many Sheehan Phinney attorneys are also involved with pro-bono legal work for various organizations as well.

The following is only a partial list of our community partners. A complete listing of individual activities can be found on our attorneys’ individual web pages.
