The foundation of Eckberg Lammers is steadfast community support and the building of strong, healthy, and prosperous communities. Our commitment and dedication are demonstrated at all levels of the organization through service, participation, and volunteering in local organizations, offering free/reduced legal services to nonprofit organizations as well as through our Volunteer-Time-Off (VTO) Program.

In 2021, Eckberg Lammers committed 5% of our annual net income to charitable organizations. This includes firm-wide donations as well as an employee-matching program. Our employees individually recognize the value in a variety of organizations within the communities they work, live, and support. We are proud to have employees who share the same values as our firm and are happy to provide another opportunity for them to give back to the organizations they individually support.
