GOOD DEEDS

Early Thanksgiving at homeless shelter

Thanksgiving Homeless ShelterA homeless shelter isn't the typical venue for legal consultations, unless you work for Lanier Law Group. The law practice, with 11 offices in North Carolina, has taken an interest in helping the homeless. On a typical week, attorneys with the firm stop in to help qualifying people apply for disability. Homeless people in Gastonia received an added gift from the firm Wednesday in the spirit of Thanksgiving. Attorneys, and their families, prepared homemade chicken pot pies with a slew of sides and desserts.  Read More

Bone Marrow Donor

52701d94794c8.imageIn the winter of 2009, Lanier Law Group employee Reuben Proctor was at a blood drive at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, NC put on by the American Red Cross. Reuben saw a booth set up for a program called Be The Match. He looked into it and saw that it was a registry for people to be bone marrow donors. He saw that one in 500 people on the registry actually go on to donate bone marrow. He signed up by doing a cheek swab, and giving them his contact information, and thought, “What’s the chance I’ll actually get called to donate?”

In March 2014, Reuben got an email letting him know that he was a possible match for someone who needed a transplant, and wanting to know if he was still interested. Reuben contacted the National Marrow Donor Program and let them know he was still interested in donating. After doing some additional screening, he has been identified as a perfect match for a young child who has a very serious illness, with a very small life expectancy if a transplant is not received.

Reuben will be donating to the young child in the coming few weeks, and if the transplant works, the young one will have a chance to live a full life.

Ronnie & Phyllis get hitched

52701d94794c8.imageRonnie Poteat sat in the corner by the wall of windows Tuesday, wearing a borrowed suit, borrowed tasseled shoes and a red rose pinned to his lapel.

He had just gotten married to Phyllis Foust, a woman he had defended, helped, fed and lived with for more than 30 years. They had talked about marriage forever. But they never went through with it until Tuesday at the Interactive Resource Center, the local go-to spot for anyone who is homeless.

A local law firm that has helped Ronnie and Phyllis also found a dress, a veil, a dark suit and two places that agreed to cut and style the couple’s hair for free. The law firm got the rings, too.

Triad Health Project

Lanier-health-project

Recently, Lanier Law Group, P.A. participated in collecting canned goods for the food pantry at The Triad Health Project in Greensboro, North Carolina—an organization that provides support to those that have contracted HIV/AIDS, those that are at risk, and those that have watched a loved one suffer from the disease. Every office participated in stocking the pantry, and of our 11 locations, the firm delivered two truckloads full of food to the organization. Lisa Lanier, the president of Lanier Law Group, P.A., also matched all of the employee donations given to the food pantry. Triad Health Project was designed not only to support individuals who are battling HIV/AIDS but also to educate and promote awareness within the community about the disease. For this reason, the firm was proud to sponsor their efforts and give back to the community in any way that we could.
