Doing Good Business – Local Business Invests in the Community over Years
Community Firm, Steinger, Iscoe & Greene champions the aspirations of a local man to empower at-risk youth
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Five years ago, Thomas Benjamin, founder of Face It Athletics, met with local law firm Steinger, Iscoe, and Greene in an effort to build his dream of inspiring, equipping, and empowering at-risk and inner-city youth.
This year, when Benjamin was named one of six recipients of the Community Champions Award, he wanted the Sun-Sentinel to conduct his interview at firm’s West Palm Beach offices – a homecoming of sorts. When asked why he chose to meet at the personal injury law firm’s office Benjamin said, “It is rare that you meet a business with the heart for their community and people as Steinger, Iscoe and Greene has. This firm made my dream of impacting the community possible back in 2009 and has stood by me ever since.” w/image into release.
Without any actual presence in the local community at the time, but armed with a dream, Benjamin was on a mission to uplift the community by providing opportunities for both youth and adult empowerment through education, communication, and recreation. According to his Sun-Sentinel interview Benjamin focuses on what he calls “the seed years”, ages 7 to 18, where “…we can plant the seeds that will help them grow into individuals who excel.”
Benjamin’s mission is completely in line with the firm’s community commitment, so much so that Steinger, Iscoe and Greene was moved to make a multi-year, $20,000 pledge to help amplify Benjamin’s dream and enable him to serve exponentially. Making this type of promise is nothing new to this firm. Since 1997 Steinger, Iscoe and Greene has been in the business of helping those facing some of life’s most difficult challenges, helping families put the pieces of their lives back together after an accident or traumatic injury. Proactively, the firm has championed and advocated on behalf of children, especially underserved, abused, abandoned or neglected, both in the courtroom and throughout the community. Longstanding support of the Guardian ad Litem program and Speak Up for Kids of Palm Beach county are testament to this steadfast mission and vision of the firm.
Founding firm partner, Michael Steinger, explained that “Our firm is a part of this community – people helping people through some of life’s most difficult times. Helping others is the basis for our opening the firm. We value our South Florida home and the opportunity to continually advocate for children and families right here. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing we can impact people’s lives for good.”
