Hill Ward Henderson has a long history of giving back to the community. Benjamin H. Hill, III, one of the firm's founders, often tells young lawyers, "Practicing law is a privilege, not a right. As such, we as lawyers have an obligation to give back to our community." This philosophy is so pervasive that it has become integral to firm culture. In fact, giving back to the community is one of the firm's stated requirements for election to shareholder.

Practicing law is a privilege, not a right. As such, we as lawyers have an obligation to give back to our community.

The firm's philosophy regarding community involvement is global in nature. We encourage our lawyers to become involved in whatever impassions them, whether professional, civic, charitable or religious in affiliation. As a result, our lawyers are involved in a wide variety of organizations at all levels. The firm supports the endeavors of its attorneys through donations, pro bono work and participation at relevant events. It is this consistent, cohesive effort to improve the Tampa community that has, over the years, created a culture of "giving back."
