Shields | Mott L.L.P. was a proud sponsor of the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity’s Bench and Bar Build 2019 program.
Bench & Bar Build is a collaboration of local legal professionals coordinated by New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity. Legal professional volunteers (judges, partners, associates, paralegals, professional staff, government/nonprofit employees) work side by side with a hard-working New Orleans family, who will purchase the house upon completion.
On Saturday, September 28, 2019, partner, Betsy Gordon, and associates, Laura Avery and Christopher Joseph, proudly represented Shields Mott L.L.P. at the Build. The turnout for this year’s Build was wonderful, with 60 volunteers on hand (including the three Shields Mott L.L.P. representatives!), and the event raised $20,000! Those proceeds will be used for the construction of affordable homes built for and with hard-working local families in the Lower Ninth Ward, New Orleans East, and other neighborhoods across the city.
