Our Commitment to Serving the Community

Posted By Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. || 18-Jan-2016

“I believe that attorneys have an obligation to take their knowledge and training back to their communities and perform volunteer work for people who need it. I look for the kind of lawyer who cares about others and making New York City a better place to live. This type of work is proof to me that an attorney has compassion and a moral sense and will be dedicated to our clients’ causes. I am proud to say that my attorneys do volunteer and pro bono work, from feeding the hungry to providing free legal advice. We are committed to helping people.” Michele Mirman, Esq.

Michele Mirman has also always been involved in volunteer work. Most recently, she became a member of AllinBrooklyn, a community of women that makes grants to organizations that strengthen Brooklyn. She is a longtime supporter of both the Brooklyn Kindergarten Society, which raises money for preschools in underprivileged areas in Brooklyn, and The Making Headway Foundation, whose purpose is to raise money for research into brain cancer in children. Mrs. Mirman also serves as a trustee of the Tenement Museum of New York City, whose mission is to tell the story of the immigrant experience in the United States and to celebrate the achievements immigrants have made. As the Vice President of the Brooklyn Women's Bar Association, she has spearheaded the drive to raise money for the Safe Homes Project of Brooklyn, which provides shelter and services for abused women and children. Mrs. Mirman also served on the judiciary committee for the New York State Women's Bar Association, which rates New York State judicial candidates. In addition, she is on the Board of Directors of the New York State Trial Lawyers, advocated for construction safety on behalf of workers, and has served as a speaker for "Distracted Driving," giving presentations to high school students on the dangers of texting while driving.

Attorney Michael Glynn has been a proud member of the Cathedral Club for over 10 years, raising money for scholarships for children who could not otherwise afford school tuition. He also freely gives his time coaching football and basketball to young teenagers.

Jeannie Rivera, an associate with our firm, volunteers as a Troop Leader for the Girl Scouts of America to help plan, coordinate and fundraise for community service projects. Her troop has provided care packages for homeless families living in shelters, sponsored the training of a guide dog for the blind, and collected and donated school supplies for children who cannot afford to purchase them, as well as collecting and donating personal care products for retired war veterans.

Associate Attorney Michael O’Hagan operates a mobile soup kitchen through lower Manhattan with the Coalition for the Homeless, which he has done for the last four years. Before that, his route was in another area of New York City. Together with the Coalition, he provides advice, fellowship, and hot meals to approximately 150 people on a weekly basis.

Daniel Niamehr, who recently joined the firm and will be admitted to practice this coming month, currently does pro bono work at The Civil Legal Advice and Resource Office in Brooklyn, where he assists low-income New Yorkers being sued by debt collectors. He also volunteers his time with CUNY Citizenship Now, a program that helps non-citizens who have been legally living in the United States to obtain citizenship.

David Pretter is extensively involved in his community. He donates his time and resources to an organization that assists single-parent families, aiming to provide comprehensive support for children, such big brother/big sister mentoring, school advocacy, parental support, and financial assistance

David Weissman has worked with Brooklyn Legal Services, a legal aid program in which he helped advocate for low-income tenants in Housing Court, and also helped disabled individuals secure Social Security Disability benefits. He provided free attorney consultations through the New York County Lawyers Association, and he supports programs that aid orphans and the homeless.
