“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” – Coretta Scott King
Since its doors first opened in 1976, Gross McGinley has valued and recognized the importance of giving back to our community through service and leadership.
Throughout the decades, we’ve encouraged all of our employees — from attorneys and staff — to volunteer and serve in leadership positions throughout the greater Lehigh Valley area.
Working as a lawyer offers professional and personal rewards, and at Gross McGinley, we believe that part of our work includes sharing our experience, insight, and passions with the community.
Our attorneys and staff make a difference in a myriad of ways, through:
In addition to donating regularly to both local and national charities, we champion firm-wide initiatives like collection drives and service projects.
In 2013 when the PPL Center moved into the neighborhood, we hosted more than 250 clients and friends at the new hockey arena. Our guests enjoyed tours of the construction site, feasted on stadium-themed food, received hockey-themed giveaways, and got a special visit from the Phantom’s original mascot, Phlex.
Downtown Allentown hosts one of the largest Blues festivals in the Lehigh Valley, which regularly attracts over 25,000 visitors. In 2017, the firm hosted the first Gross McGinley Car show at Blues, Brews & Barbecue.
In 2020, the firm reached out to more than a dozen Lehigh Valley nonprofits, many located right in Downtown Allentown, for Gross McGinley Giving Back Tuesday. Amidst a pandemic year when most events and fundraisers were cancelled, the firm found a unique way to support the local community when it needed it the most.
On a weekly basis, members of the firm volunteer to serve breakfast at Zion’s “Liberty Bell” Reformed United Church of Christ during the winter months. Over 4,000 meals are served every season to city neighbors in need.
Gross McGinley is a proud member of the Downtown Allentown community.
