Community Involvement

As personal injury lawyers, our mission is to help create safer communities. Our pursuit of this mission goes beyond helping people navigate the legal system after they’ve experienced a terrible accident.

Through our No DUI Free Sober Rides and Safe Driving Scholarship initiatives, and through sponsoring worthy local organizations, we strive to make the communities where we live and work safer for everyone.

A&U’s No DUI Free Holiday Rides Program. A recent study showed that 1 in 5 adults in the United States are harmed by someone else’s drinking. Our sober rides program aims to reduce drunk driving in our neighborhoods—and that starts with you.

Local Organizations We Support

Feeding Tampa Bay.
