The attorneys at Wright, Constable & Skeen feel strongly that they have an obligation to contribute to the community. They take pride in backing up that conviction with action, contributing hundreds of hours to the community each year. The firm’s involvement in local and regional civic organizations is deeply rooted. Our attorneys have had many high profile positions such as presidents of local bar associations and many have gone on to become judges or to serve the community in other ways. However, nothing makes the firm prouder than the less publicized public contributions that our attorneys make to the community every day. Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is a core value of our firm. Since the firm’s founding in the early 1900’s, Wright Constable & Skeen has supported a diverse range of causes, lending a helping hand to those in need in our local communities. Following is a list of organization with whom our attorneys and staff have been privileged to support through active involvement, often in a leadership role.
