The success of Henderson Franklin is built upon more than the service that we provide to our clients - it is equally dependent on what we give back to the community. James A. Franklin, Sr., realized this important relationship when the growth of the firm allowed hiring associates who were "imbued with high ideals and filled with the desire to be of service to the community."

We still follow that example today. We believe that to be real leaders our commitment must extend beyond the boardroom and courtroom. Our attorneys contribute to the communities of Southwest Florida and have served as city attorney, school board attorney and members of the Florida Legislature, in addition to serving as directors and chairpersons of numerous civic organizations. Many of our attorneys have also provided leadership to the Lee County Bar Association and The Florida Bar, serving as presidents, committee and section chairpersons of both.

Henderson Franklin takes pride in supporting charitable organizations throughout the region and helping others achieve their own success. Henderson Franklin's attorneys and staff contribute both time and money to the United Way, Junior Achievement, March of Dimes, American Cancer Society, Habitat for Humanity, Hope Hospice, American Heart Association, the Children's Home Society and the Foster Care Council of Southwest Florida as well as to a number of other local charitable organizations.

Henderson Franklin was named as an Industry Appreciation Honoree as part of an annual statewide celebration of business to raise public awareness of the positive contributions that industry makes to local communities. We are the only law firm to have been so honored to date.
