Helping injured people since 1947

Community and Charitable Support

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

– Winston Churchill

Since 1947, Galfand Berger has stood on the side of injured workers, consumers and individuals.   Our firm’s mission is unequivocal:  to secure full and just compensation for people who have suffered injustices and injuries.   And, we are a firm that puts our words into action not only in the courtroom but also in our community.  Galfand Berger, our Philadelphia personal injury attorneys, and our staff have a long history of giving back to the communities we serve.  We are proud to support the vital work of groups like:

The Legal Clinic for the Disabled (LCD):  The LCDprovides free high-quality legal services to low-income people with physical disabilities and to the deaf and hard of hearing.

Support Center for Child Advocates: The Support Center for Child Advocates is the country’s oldest and largest probono legal and social services agency for children. The Center’s mission is to advocate for abused and neglected children in Philadelphia, with the goal of securing a permanent, nurturing environment for every child.

The Homeless Advocacy Project: HAP exists to meet the legal and advocacy needs of homeless individuals and families in Philadelphia. With a legal staff of six and a corps of 300 volunteer lawyers, paralegals, and law students, HAP engages in direct outreach to homeless individuals in need of legal services.

Philly VIP: VIP promotes equal justice for the poor by providing civil legal services not otherwise available, collaborating with other legal services organizations and promoting a culture of volunteerism by educating and exposing attorneys and law students to issues of poverty.

Kids’ Chance of Pennsylvania, Inc.: The mission of Kids’ Chance is to provide financial support for college and vocational education — through scholarship grants — to children of Pennsylvania workers who have been killed or seriously injured in a work-related accident.

The Martha J. Hampton Award:  This award is named after the former partner of Galfand Berger LLP who displayed an exemplary commitment to protecting the rights of injured workers. It is presented each year to the attorney or judge who best exemplifies Ms. Hampton’s dedication, professionalism and good will. A donation, in the recipient’s name, is made each year to Kids’ Chance.

Peggy Browning Fund:  Established in memory of Margaret A. Browning, a prominent labor attorney and member of the National Labor Relations Board under President Clinton, the Fund’s mission is to provide law students with diverse, challenging work and educational experiences in the area of workers’ rights. Such unique and positive opportunities will both increase students’ understanding of workers’ needs as well as promote their entry into the practice of public interest labor law.

Urban League of Philadelphia: provides direct services, research and policy advocacy to help underserved populations reach their fullest potential.

The Philadelphia Area Project on Occupational Safety and Health — or PhilaPosh —  is made up of unions, health and legal professionals working together since 1975 for a safe and protected workplace as well as for the rights of injured workers. Read a Special Acknowledgement from PhilaPOSH.

Our Philadelphia personal injury law firm also supports events hosted by workers’ rights groups such as the United Labor Council of Reading and Berks County and the Chester County AFL-CIO COPE.  And, our staff embodies the firm’s core values of volunteerism by donating their time, resources, and energy to crucial issues, like:  breast cancer awareness, homelessness, poverty and hunger, student mentoring, community civic associations, and access to the legal system for the impoverished, disabled and needy.
