"It gives me great satisfaction to know that our law firm is now one of those established firms giving back to the community."
Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) August 28, 2014
Ankin Law Office, LLC is proud to once again be participating in Race Judicata® -- a 5K Run/Walk that benefits Chicago Volunteer Legal Services Foundation (CVLS). Race Judicata® 2014 will be the 20th year of the event, and it is expected to be bigger and better than ever.
"Our firm takes great pride in participating in such a fun, community-focused event for CVLS," says Howard Ankin, a partner with Ankin Law Office. "We are proud to compete alongside many large law firms, knowing that we are running with the best of the best in the Chicago legal community, whether in this race or in our day-to-day legal practice."
Nearly 40 attorneys and staff of Ankin Law Office will be participating in Race Judicata® 2014, with the firm also sponsoring a tent for the race and participating in the t-shirt contest. Although the firm has yet to win the t-shirt design contest, each year Ankin Law Office participates with enthusiasm and optimism.
"When I first started my law practice in 1997, I enjoyed participating in Race Judicata with the other young lawyers that I knew," Ankin reminisces. "I used to admire the established law firms who would come out to enjoy the firm bonding, all wearing the same running shirt. It gives me great satisfaction to know that our law firm – which has grown to 57 people – is now one of those established firms giving back to the community."
