The firm's attorneys and staff volunteer their time and give their support to a variety of educational and community social service organizations and activities throughout the year.

The Alvin R. Christovich Endowed Professorship
To commemorate the 75th anniversary of Alvin R. Christovich’s graduation from law school, the firm along with the Christovich and Kearney families established The Alvin R. Christovich Endowed Professorship at Loyola University School of Law. This endowment was created to advance defense trial practice, legal professionalism and ethical standards.

The Pro Bono Project
The firm's attorneys volunteer their time and experience by participating in The Pro Bono Project, a non-profit organization of volunteer attorneys who represent indigent clients in civil matters. The Pro Bono Project is committed to providing full access to our justice system for these citizens. Christovich & Kearney has been a sponsor of the Pro Bono Project's annual fundraiser, Justice for All Ball.

HELP: Homeless Experience Legal Protection
Attorneys from Christovich & Kearney have been volunteers for this program since it was started by United States District Court Judge Jay Zainey in 2004. The program provides weekly legal clinics offering pro bono advice and representation for homeless individuals.

Every Christmas the firm participates in the "Secret Santa" program of the Louisiana State Bar Association / Louisiana Bar Foundation providing gifts, toys, clothes and donations to disadvantaged children.
