Organizations that Benefit
In 2014 Sodoma Law announced the creation of the Sodoma Law Foundation. The Foundation supports organizations addressing issues to which the firm is deeply committed: those that improve the well-being of children regionally and nationally, and those that support the charitable endeavors of the Mecklenburg County’s legal community. The Sodoma Law Foundation formalizes and expands an ongoing tradition at this leading Family Law practice of significant contributions to these causes. It aggregates the firm’s charitable endeavors, both pro bono work and contributed funds, into areas where they can make the maximum impact.
