Pierce Law Group LLP proudly supports the following charities, both through financial contributions and volunteer efforts by its attorneys and staff:
The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS exists to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. As there are no means of preventing or early screening for most blood cancers, the LLS research agenda is focused on finding cures. LLS drives research in areas of unmet medical need, and helps to bridge the gap between academic discovery and drug development. LLS identifies and funds the most promising blood cancer research projects and forges partnerships with academic institutions, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies to accelerate the development of new therapies.
LLS is the leading source of free, highly specialized blood cancer information, education and support for patients, survivors, families and healthcare professionals. We touch patients in their communities through our chapters across the U.S. and Canada. LLS advocates for blood cancer survivors and their families, helping patients navigate their cancer treatments and ensuring they have access to quality, affordable and coordinated care. LLS is dedicated to removing barriers to care. By providing its network of advocates a powerful voice, the LLS Policy and Advocacy Team drives policies that accelerate the development and approval of innovative treatments and ensure that patients have sustainable access to quality, affordable coordinated care. Its team is committed to ensuring that patients have access to adequate network of providers and services and are protected from high out-of-pocket costs that limit access to life-saving treatments.
The Reeve Foundation is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy. Formed by 1999 as a joint effort between Christopher Reeve and the American Paralysis Association, the organization sums up its mission in four words: “Today’s Care. Tomorrow’s Cure.” which reflects the dual purpose set forth by Christopher and Dana Reeve to provide a continuum of hope for individuals living with paralysis worldwide. In 2002, the Reeve Foundation Paralysis Resource Center (PRC) opened its doors to offer a free, comprehensive, national source of informational support for people living with paralysis and their caregivers. Its Quality of Life Grants Program has awarded over 2,837 grants, totaling more than $20.6 million in financial support for fellow nonprofits that mirror the Reeve Foundation’s mission. The grants focus on programs or projects that foster community engagement and involvement, while promoting health and wellness for individuals living with paralysis. The Reeve Foundation and its predecessor have awarded nearly $120 million to labs around the globe to accelerate scientific breakthroughs across the field.

Hundreds of thousands of Angelenos cannot afford housing, food, or medicine – let alone an attorney. Even though free legal aid helps ensure access to justice and basic necessities for the most vulnerable among us, there is not enough legal aid available: for every legal aid attorney in California, there are more than 6,000 eligible clients who need assistance. Bet Tzedek is a non-profit law firm committed to addressing this challenge. It provides free, comprehensive legal assistance and representation, volunteer and court-based self-help services, and legal education to more than 20,000 people each year. Bet Tzedek’s services keep families in their homes; secure care for those with physical, developmental or intellectual disabilities; protect seniors from abuse and real estate fraud; ensure access to safe housing and legal wages; and obtain guardianships for children to stay in safe, stable homes.
