McMinn Law Firm’s Pledge To Community Giving

Make no mistake: Jason McMinn and his brother Justin McMinn devote relentless focus on delivering what someone who has been injured seriously in an accident deserves: a top-notch, successful personal injury lawyer.Austin, though, needs much more than juries and courts, much more even than dedicated advocates to help people who’ve been hurt get the compensation they deserve. Austin needs local businesses committed to our community.

At McMinn Law Firm, we believe deeply in the generosity of spirit, time and talents. Jason McMinn and Justin McMinn are both committed to the wellbeing of children in Central Texas.  Below are selected organizations and social campaigns supported by McMinn Law Firm.

Shout it From the Rooftop: End Child Abuse

During Child Abuse Awareness Month, McMinn Law Firm reached out to the community to join us in raising money for TruLight127 Ministries. All are invited to Rooftop on the Square to raise money in support of foster children and to discuss additional ways we can support kids at risk of abuse.

Together with partners in the community we raised $6,900 for the support of children in foster care.

shoutitfromtherooftop
Foster kids across central Texas are in need of additional support. We believe that we can all do something to end child abuse.

All proceeds will go to serve the needs of children in foster care. TruLight127 helps foster families maintain a stable and healthy environment as well as assisting children who are “aging out” of the system.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas

McMinn Law Firm is proud to announce that we will be a table sponsor at this year’s Ice Ball in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas.

The organization pairs children between the ages of 6 and 16 with caring, adult mentors. Children who are a part of the program are more likely to stay drug and alcohol free, do better in school, avoid early parenting, and feel better about themselves.

Creative Action Network

In Texas, everything is bigger. That includes hair at the Big Hair Country Fair, and how much we value giving back to our community. Justin McMinn and Jason McMinn of McMinn Law Firm proudly support the mission of Creative Action in Austin. Through interactive classroom performances, and after school community-based programs, Creative Action helps inspire kids to be confident, creative, critical thinkers. A commitment to community giving sustains programs that improve the lives of youth in and around Austin, TX.

Creative Action reaches more than 20,000 youth and the adults who care for them each year. In 1997 the program was founded by four University of Texas Drama and Theatre for Youth graduates. Their first mission was to develop an interactive violence prevention program. By 2014 the Creative Action network has recieved the prestigious “Our Town” grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, and in 2015 CA’s Karen LaShelle was named “Nonprofit Executive of the Year” at the Nonprofit Excellence Awards by Mission Capital.

The Neighborhood Longhorns Program

This unique partnership between University of Texas athletics and non-profit, The Neighborhood Longhorns Program provides economically disadvantaged youth with learning opportunities. As UT alumni, McMinn Law Firm heart-warmed to provide support to our community’s future through academic and fun courses.

In May 2016, Jason and Justin participated in The Neighborhood Longhorns Association’s annual celebrity golf tournament. The McMinn Law Firm injury lawyers support the future of Austin through impactful organizations like the NLP.
