Law firms called to fight hunger

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The law is a competitive profession, and the attorney general wants attorneys to channel that competition to fight hunger in Indiana.

Attorney General Greg Zoeller, the Indiana State Bar Association, and Feeding Indiana's Hungry are joining forces for the second annual March Against Hunger food drive. It's a challenge among law firms to raise the most donations of either non-perishable food or monetary contributions for the state's regional food banks. This year's event runs from March 15-31.

Last year, 45 law firms and 10 satellite offices raised the equivalent of 76 tons of food. Barnes & Thornburg won the large-firm division; Ziemer Stayman Weitzel and Shoulders, based in Evansville, won the small-firm division; and Evansville attorney Phillip Siegel, Evansville, won in the sole practitioner division.

Firms will be put in three divisions this year: firms of 25 lawyers or more; sole practitioners and small firms of one to 24 lawyers; and public and nonprofit lawyers. Winners will receive an Attorney General's Cup.
