The attorneys and staff at Fisher Rushmer, P.A. work tirelessly not only for our clients, but also for those in need within the Orlando area. Here are a few of the community service groups that Fisher Rushmer employees help by volunteering their time and money.
Fisher Rushmer attorneys and staff participated in the 5th Annual Orange County Bar Association (OCBA) Law Day 5K Run & Walk. The event allowed participants to run or walk around beautiful Lake Baldwin Park. All proceeds raised from the 5K event benefited the Legal Aid Society of the Orange County Bar Association, Inc. and the Orange County Bar Association Foundation, Inc.
