Community Involvement

The attorneys at Lerch, Early & Brewer understand that practicing law involves more than the day-to-day activities of representing our clients. It also requires a commitment to the community in which we practice, and an effort to provide public service and legal assistance to those who cannot afford it. Through our pro bono and community service efforts, our attorneys strive for the improvement of the community, administration of justice and our profession by providing free or reduced-fee legal services to those who often need effective legal representation the most. We encourage attorneys to devote their time in pursuit of these goals.

Lerch Early attorneys and staff believe in giving back to the community in which we live and work. This includes donating our time and talents to the nearly 100 community and professional organizations listed here. 



Some examples of organizations that we represent, and whose clients we represent, in pro bono matters include:

  • Bethesda Fire Department
  • Bikur Cholim of Greater Washington
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Shepherd's Table

In addition to pro bono legal work, our lawyers and staff are active in a wide variety of community and charitable endeavors, working with and for many civic, community, cultural, governmental, educational and medical organizations that seek to improve our community and the lives of all of its citizens. We believe that by participating in these kinds of groups, we are not only able to help improve the quality of life in our community, but also to improve the working environment in our firm. Some of the organizations we are involved with include:

  • BCC Boosters Foundation
  • Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School
  • Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rotary
  • Bethesda Kiwanis
  • Combat Recovery Fund
  • Committee for Montgomery
