退伍军人

活跃的军事服务人员经常在为我们的国家服务时面临复杂的法律问题。我们加入了美国律师协会的军事Pro Bono项目,以帮助这些个人及其家人提供各种法律需求。由于这项工作,ABA荣誉荷兰和骑士,其2018年ABA军事专业股份项目优秀服务奖。荷兰省及骑士是唯一一家律师事务所或公司在2012年奖项开始以来每年获得军事Pro Bono项目的年度优秀服务奖励。我们将重要资源致力于有利于军事退伍军人的倡议,包括支持受伤的战士项目,提供合法联合之路的服务团结联合倡议,协助退伍军人与民事重新适应,并与阿巴的税收和内部收入服务部门合作,协调军事志愿者所得税援助计划。了解更多信息荷兰骑士退伍军人集团公益和社区服务倡议。

社会企业家精神

非营利组织MyGooddeed于2002年成立,推动2001年9月11日之后出现的非凡的服务精神。该组织由Jay Winuk,Glenn Winuk的兄弟,荷兰和骑士伴侣和志愿者消防员/ EMT共同创立,谁在世界贸易中心的救援人员中失去了自己的生活。我们作为普通法律顾问,向企业治理指导提供专业的合法的法律服务,进入交易和知识产权战略,并在9/11服务日进行金融和运营投资。2017年,我们通过员工执行的超过2,200个服务日,协助超过80名非营利组织和学校,并与28个客户志愿服务。我们的志愿服务包括学校翻新项目,为无家可归的家庭和退伍军人提供膳食,为医疗保健设施安排生病儿童的假日活动。

公民权利

最佳伙伴国际是世界上最大的计划,致力于结束具有智力和发展残疾人(IDD)的社会,身体和经济孤立。荷兰和骑士通过担任董事会和地方咨询委员会的总法律顾问,支持该组织超过20年。为最佳伙伴的意识活动提供财政支持,促进促进更广泛的受众的残疾权;并通过最好的伙伴职位计划雇用个人。我们赞扬最好的伙伴们致力于倡导国会大使在国会访问期间展示的德国人民的权利。

人权

20世纪90年代中期,当佛罗里达州在公立学校强制推行大屠杀教育时,Holland & Knight协助准备了第一门课程。从那时起,我们致力于提高人们对大屠杀和种族灭绝的认识,并从人类勇气和同情心的非凡故事中汲取教训。我们的律师与贝特·泽德克(Bet Tzedek)合作,帮助数百名大屠杀幸存者从德国政府获得数千美元的赔偿,并获得无偿法律服务。该事务所与美国大屠杀纪念馆的律师委员会合作,该委员会提供专业发展倡议,以研究大屠杀的法律后果。我们也支持在这一领域活跃的其他组织,如面对历史和我们自己和反诽谤联盟。

“博物馆很感激Holland & Knight与我们共同致力于确保大屠杀记忆的持久性,并传授其教训。这些教训——关于民主的脆弱性、仇恨的本质和冷漠的后果——与我们这个迅速变化的世界非常相关。Holland & Knight为纪念幸存者做出了长期而深远的努力,并激励全国各地的年轻人对抗仇恨,防止种族灭绝,促进人类尊严。”

- Sarah Ogilvie,美国大屠杀纪念馆国家大屠杀教育研究所主任

儿童和教育

通过荷兰和骑士慈善基金会的儿童计划开门,该公司的律师和员工帮助患有从未意识到其全部潜力的学生。我们与学校和非营利组织在社会经济地弱势社区提供辅导,作为导师,加强课程。例如,在Chicago的Charles R. Darwin小学,在课堂上举办的“电力午餐”期间,在志愿者挣扎的学生们在志愿者中获得帮助。通过阅读是基本计划,他们每年至少带回三本书,以引发他们对阅读的兴趣。这些学生中的许多人也会了解美国的历史,并通过与宪法权利基金会的伙伴关系向法律制度介绍。

“在过去的四年里,我见证了来自Holland & Knight的志愿者们为学生们的学习和性格塑造做出了惊人的贡献。志愿者们不仅教书、读书给学生听,他们还是努力创造成功的楷模。他们激励达尔文学院的学生建立成为优秀个体所需的自信。”
