Community

Sweet James is a law firm that truly believes in helping others not just with their personal injury claim, but within the community as well. Our team strives to create a better environment for those most in need. While we’ve spent more than a decade helping people recover from accidents, it’s never been enough. We are dedicated to providing a lending hand wherever it’s needed. This desire is something that drives us to support our community in any way we are able.

Someone Cares
 
One local cause we support is Someone Cares soup kitchen and tutoring program. The soup kitchen provides daily meals and shelter for the homeless. They also offer tutoring and after-school programs.

Fowler School of Law Scholarship
 
Many of our attorneys at the firm are alumni of the Fowler School of Law. By providing the scholarship, we hope to create opportunities for those who decided to go into the workforce before law school. It’s our belief that those who tackle the real world outside academia before entering law school are especially well-positioned to become great attorneys.

The exceptional help from the Sweet James law firm is unique in its generosity, but also in its direction,” Fowler School of Law Dean Tom Campbell said. “Recognizing the special qualifications of those who have been in the ‘real world’ for some years before law school, and also the difficulties some might have in giving up their steady income, the Sweet James Scholarship winners are selected from among law students with that kind of experience. These scholarships have allowed us to attract and retain some of the Fowler School’s most dedicated students, and most successful alumni.

KFI Law Day
 
We have participated in
KFI Law Day to provide free legal consultations for accident victims who have questions regarding their accident. KFI Law Day allows radio listeners the chance to seek free advice from lawyers across a wide variety of legal specialties. If you have questions regarding an accident claim, our office provides free help 24 hours a day, every day.

Anything Can Be
 
This project helps children fighting cancer by taking their dreams and recreating them through the power of art and photography. We joined forces with Anything Can Be, photographer Jonathon Diaz, to help fulfill these children’s dreams.

Paralyzed Veterans of America
 
Paralyzed Veterans of America has strived to help seriously injured veterans for over 70 years. Every year, LA Sports AM 570 hosts a radiothon to raise money for the Paralyzed Veterans of America. We believe there are so many different ways we can help paralyzed veterans. Whether it’s donating money, clothes, food, or just your time, learn how you can get help.

Public Education
 
In an effort to give our local public schools the resources they need, Sweet James has given to various public schools throughout California including Monrovia High School, Los Altos High School, Lakewood High School, Mira Costa High School, and the Irvine Public Schools Foundation.

Other California Charities and Organizations
 
Sweet James gives to a wide variety of other nonprofits and charitable organizations, including the Boys and Girls Club, Dream Center Foundation, Catarina’s Club, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles, Orange County Museum of Art, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation, and Mustard Seed Ranch.
