Assouline & Berlowe has long been involved in giving back to the community, in the form of time, money, and energy in order to support those who are less fortunate as well as in support of other important causes.
The examples of how the firm has been involved in philanthropic commitments are many. As early as in 2004, when the Firm was just a year old, the Firm sponsored a mayoral debate for Miami-Dade County. In 2005, the Firm sponsored the Beauty and the Beast Fund Raising Program for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In 2006, the Firm sponsored Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Walk-a-Thon in Sunrise, Florida. The firm again returned to support JDRF in 2014, when the Firm sponsored a charity golf tournament in support of JDRF.
During the economic crises in the later part of 2008, as so many Americans were losing their jobs, the Firm management did not feel it appropriate to have a holiday party for its staff at the end of the year. So, instead of celebrating another successful year, the Firm made a donation to the Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital for the support, care and treatment of children at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital at Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, Florida. The donation is commemorated by an inscribed brick to be placed next to the statute of Yankee Clipper, Joe DiMaggio at the hospital. In Miami, the Firm donated to the Miami Children’s Hospital, and was recognized with another inscribed brick at the Fountain.
The Firm has also been involved in several directorships for non-profit organizations. For example, Eric Assouline serves as a director for both the B’Nai Brith Justice Unit and Jewish National Fund. Ellen Leibovitch is a director with the South Palm Beach County Bar Association. Mr. Assouline and Ms. Leibovitch have also been involved in supporting the Florida Bar as members of the Florida Bar Grievance Committees in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
As the Firm continues to grow, our commitment to the community has never been stronger.
