For more than 100 years, our attorneys and staff have been inspired by those in the community who make Virginia a great place to live and work. That’s why each year, we share the stories of the Hometown Heroes that generate positive change in our community or in the lives of others.
A community is so much more than just a group of people: it’s the spirit we create when we work together with our neighbors to help one another. Everywhere in Virginia are individuals who are driven to volunteer, motivate, create, and donate to their hometowns. We call these special people Hometown Heroes.
“We find our lives in spending them in the service of others.”
-George Allen Sr., founder of the Allen Law Firm.
To celebrate our 100th Anniversary in 2010, Allen & Allen recognized outstanding members of the communities we serve who embody and demonstrate the ideals of service and action that our firm was founded upon. Honoring these dedicated citizens was so fulfilling and uplifting for both our firm and community that it became an annual event.
After careful consideration, these 25 nominees were chosen to be the 2017 Allen & Allen Hometown Heroes because of their untiring commitment to helping others.
