OUR CORE VALUES
With a desire to give back to the community, both locally and abroad, Brown & Streza has partnered with a variety of organizations. Being a firm that highly values intentional relationships, many of these partnerships have stretched over several years. While participation is optional, the majority of our team members eagerly take part in these charitable efforts. Serving others through these partnerships has changed the lives of so many around the world, and has touched the hearts of our team members in so many ways.
LOCAL COMMUNITY OUTREACH
JESSIE REES FOUNDATION
NEGU - Never Ever Give Up! This slogan is well known amongst our attorneys and staff. For several years, Brown & Streza has proudly partnered with the Jessie Rees Foundation to spread encouragement, hope, joy and love to Courageous Kids fighting cancer. Our team members have eagerly stuffed JoyJars, shown their creative side crafting encouraging care cards, volunteered to finish baby blankets, and hosted JoyDrives.
Jessie’s JoyJars – 64oz plastic jars stuffed full of love with fun, age appropriate toys are shipped to children’s hospitals, care centers, proton clinics, Ronald McDonald Houses, and oncology centers providing a boost of JOY, a giggle, a smile, and a reminder that they are not alone.
The joy of participation is priceless!
LOCAL COMMUNITY OUTREACH
Brown & Streza partnered with Illumination Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) that provides housing and healthcare to the most vulnerable in our community. Making an impact on homelessness, one life at a time.
LOCAL & ABROAD COMMUNITY OUTREACH
USMC EMBEDDED TRANSITION TEAM
Over the years, Brown & Streza has provided support to members of our armed services who are deployed overseas. We proudly sponsored a group of Marines who were serving in Afghanistan. Prior to their deployment we threw a heartwarming Christmas party for the Marines and their families. While deployed, our team regularly sent care packages and letters of encouragement to the troops, also providing care packages for expectant wives and other family members who were waiting for their loved one to return.
ABROAD COMMUNITY OUTREACH
EAST AFRICA PARTNERSHIP
Recognizing that education has the power to transform lives, Brown & Streza has sponsored several college-level students through East Africa Partnership. The program partners with local churches and aid organizations to provide housing, meals, education, involvement in the community, opportunities to be mentored and tutored, and – most importantly – the hope of a better life. Building relationships with the students over the year has been a big blessing to us. We have been privileged to meet staff and students from the program who have visited Orange County, as well as afforded the opportunity to go to Kenya to serve first hand.
ABROAD COMMUNITY OUTREACH
WELLS OF LIFE
Attorneys, staff, friends, and family - Team Brown & Streza - made a difference by partnering with 501(c)(3) charity, Wells of Life, in order to provide clean water to families in rural Uganda. Our participation in a “Run4Water” 5K event raised funds to drill Well #201 for the Omodoi Community. This well provides about a 1000 people with clean water without daily having to walk 5k to get it! Moved by the experience, several team members have continued to personally support this cause through various endeavors.
Our attorneys are proud to be leaders both locally and nationally in the legal community. Two of our partners are “Fellows” of national organizations peer-elected to membership: one a “Fellow” of the American College of Tax and Estate Counsel (ACTEC), and another a “Fellow” of the American College of Tax Counsel (ACTC). We also have numerous attorneys who are members and serve as leaders of local professional organizations such as California Lawyers Association, Orange County Bar Association, Napa Legal Institute, and CalCPA.
In addition to their involvement in the legal community, our attorneys have invested their time in furthering diverse organizations spanning the likes of cultural arts, youth sports, religious institutions, education, and more. The desire to serve these organizations stems from individual passions and interests, as well as the desire to make an impact on their communities.
