Trial Lawyers Who Give Back

In 2007, the attorneys at Walsh, Knippen & Cetina, Chartered continued to contribute a portion of the fees they secured through their dedication and commitment to professional excellence to select not-for-profit organizations.

Environmental Contributions

The firm has contracted, through Community Energy, (http://www.newwindenergy.com/) to purchase green energy power usage in wind energy for the 2008 year. Green energy power is produced from renewable energy sources, such as solar, wind, geothermal energy, and landfill gas. These energy sources have dramatically lower pollution emissions and cause much less environmental damage than fossil fuels.

The Annie Ryan Foundation (http://www.annierun.com/) supports families of children who have been diagnosed with pediatric brain tumors which are now the leading cause of childhood cancer related deaths. The Annie Ryan Foundation hosts the annual Annie Ryan Fun Run in Elmhurst which is committed to support the programs of the Midwest Childrens Brain Tumor Center. The journey that these families are on is a difficult one; but with continued sponsorship, the Center will continue offering the latest technology and family support programs.
