2023 Report To The Community

To Our Friends And Communities

We’re excited to share with you this year’s edition of Padilla’s Report to the Community. It not only highlights the impact we made in our communities throughout 2023 but it also provides us an opportunity to reflect on the culture of caring we’ve built coast-to-coast across our firm.

Our work in 2023 reflects who we are as a firm and who we are as individuals — a team of dedicated, diverse, driven professionals with the ability to make a difference not just with our clients, but with our communities.

That culture is amplified by Padilla PluggedIn, our firm-wide corporate social responsibility program consisting of individual volunteerism, agency pro bono work and charitable contributions. We hope you’ll take the time to read about our Volunteer of the Quarter honorees. Leah, Jessica, Kim and Marie all exemplify the good we do to strengthen our communities.

We look forward to deepening our impact in 2024 as we seek out new opportunities, welcome new partnerships and plug-in more intently to the world around us.
