Charitable giving and support of local communities and institutions has been part of Farina Law Firm’s DNA since its inception. Principal Attorney and founder Allison R. Farina, Esq. says, ‘From the beginning, the firm’s mission has been ‘Planning for Tomorrow Today’; to help families make smart planning decisions to prepare for whatever challenges – usually unexpected – life may bring. Supporting organizations that are helping people overcome even greater challenges aligns perfectly with that mission.’Farina Law Firm Celebrating 10th Year of Practice
Farina continued, ’When I started Farina Law Firm in 2010, I naturally hoped it would be successful, but I honestly didn’t anticipate the scope of the positive reaction from the Charleston community in such a relatively short amount of time. I’m profoundly grateful to everyone who has placed their trust in us over the past several years, and I just felt the greatest gesture of thanks and respect I could show them would be to support these groups in their name.’
