Community Giving Engrained in the Workplace
The Steinberg Law Firm is best known for fiercely protecting the rights of injured people in the Charleston area and their dedication to serving their community. The law firm is usually highlighted for charitable giving events, on-site visits and donations, and volunteer efforts. One of the lesser-known incentives the Steinberg Law Firm participates in to truly integrate giving and charity into their firm, weekly, are Casual Fridays.
What is Casual Friday?
Day in and day out, the staff at the Steinberg Law Firm firm will diligently work on their client’s cases in typical business attire.

Every Friday is an opportunity to make a difference at the Steinberg Law Firm through Casual Fridays. Our Staff has a chance to donate $5 to a local charity in exchange to wear jeans to work.
Where Does Casual Friday Fundraising Go?
You may have heard of the Steinberg Law Firm’s Community Foundation Program. It allows the firm to hand select and donate to nonprofit organizations that we as a firm hold close to our hearts. Each year, 10 – 12 select nonprofits organizations are chosen by the staff through the Steinberg Community Fund to receive funding to further their positive work in the Lowcountry area.
It is important for our staff to continue supporting the non-profit organizations that we partner with after they received their funding. That is why our staff has decided to create a fundraising program where they can continue their support through monthly volunteering and through these casual Friday donations each week.
Steinberg Law Firm’s Marketing Director, Yani Smith, chimes, “We [the Steinberg Law Firm] always strive to lift up the community that surrounds us. Having Casual Fridays in the office has created a culture where being able to do that is second nature.”
