Citizenship

#WBKForward together we make a difference

As a law firm long committed to community, inclusion, and service, WBK  has always been eager to connect more deeply — and give back in new and expanded ways — to the communities we serve. Over four decades, WBK lawyers and staff have devoted time and energy to volunteerism, civic and community leadership, charitable giving, pro bono work, mentoring, service on nonprofit boards, and more. Our firm pillars emphasize teamwork, unique contributions, and a supportive culture, and WBK Forward fits squarely within these values.
