Giving Back During the Month of Love

It’s hard to believe February is already here. The month of love is in full force. Have you made your Valentine’s Day reservations yet, by the way? February is always an interesting month in a family law firm. We have some clients who hire us specifically in the month of February out of spite for their soon-to-be ex. We have other clients who put their divorce “on hold” to try one more time to rekindle the romance with their spouse. February is also the beginning of the official tax refund season, so we have many clients who choose to begin their cases in February as they receive their tax refund, which they needed to be able to afford proper legal representation. At The Stevens Firm, however, we like to take a look back over the beneficiaries of our charitable contributions from the year before and set goals for which causes will receive our support in the coming year. It’s our way of spreading love throughout our communities. In 2018, we provided charitable support to the following organizations, and we were excited to see the positive difference they each made in our communities this past year:

Love Without Boundaries American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers Foundation AFCC Scholarship Fund

Wounded Warriors St. Jude’s Hospital The Lonon Foundation Church of the Advent

In 2019, we pledge to continue to offer support to these wonderful organizations, along with some new ones we may not have worked with before. Do you have any favorite charitable organizations you would like us to consider? Go to our firm’s Facebook page and let us know which causes you’d like to see us support this year and why. Our mission is to help our clients make the best of some tough situations, but we also enjoy giving back to and supporting the communities we serve. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Reminder About Our Firm’s Communication Policy Our promise to you is that while we are working on your case, we don’t take inbound phone calls, faxes, or emails. Our senior partner, Ben Stevens, takes no unscheduled inbound phone calls, as we have found this makes him much more productive and enables him to focus on getting your case resolved faster. You can always call our office at 864-598-9172 and schedule an in-person or phone appointment with any of our attorneys, usually within 24–48 hours. We believe this approach is much better than the endless game of phone tag played by most businesses today. Email is also an efficient way to communicate with us, but please

be advised that emails are not typically checked more than twice per day. If you need something quickly, don’t email — call our office and speak with one of our assistants, who will be happy to help you.
