LawMatters – November 2019

Happy Thanksgiving from Offit Kurman! Thanksgiving is an opportunity to express gratitude for the things in life we often take for granted. Our businesses, homes, and families give us the strength, security, and purpose to make a positive impact in the world. Our neighbors, colleagues, and friends share in our joys and sorrows, supporting us through life's ups and downs. Each of us can benefit from recognizing and taking fulfillment in what we already have.

But while many of us enjoy material comforts at this time of the year, there are far too many people out there suffering greatly—financially, emotionally, physically, and in some cases, in all of the above measures. To help provide food, shelter, clothing, and support to those in need, the Offit Kurman Charitable Foundation has arranged to make generous contributions to Feeding America and the Salvation Army. We encourage you to give as well. Donate to Feeding America here or donate to the Salvation Army here.

Offit Kurman is dedicated to safeguarding the life you've built, as well as your dreams for the future—the people, places, and things that matter now and, in the years, to come. See how we're hard at work for you, your family, your business, and your community. Find the latest updates and articles from Offit Kurman in the November 2019 Edition of LawMatters.
