One of GLF’s Core Values is Giving Back. We believe strongly that as a member of our community, we must also serve our community. That is why, over the years, GLF has been a strong supporter of many worthwhile charitable causes. The firm has sponsored scholarships for high school students, undertaken pro bono projects for the indigent, and is a regular contributor to The Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County. Through Legal Aid, GLF helps to assure that those who are the most vulnerable can achieve legal help when needed.
Members of the firm serve on the Board of Directors or co-founded several nonprofit organizations such as:
Oasis Compassion Agency – Provides, food, job counseling and empowerment programs for the poor
The Caribbean Bar Association – Bar Association promoting justice in underserved communities
Youmoms, Inc. – Provides assistance to young, single moms
Skillz Basketball Academy – Uses sports as a means of working with inner city youth

Families adopted for Christmas by firm founders.
This commitment is a way of life for the firm. In 2003 Wayne and Sharon Gill founded the Oasis Compassion Agency based on a donation from GLF. The Oasis provides assistance to the poor by teaching job skills, entrepreneurial skills, and providing job placement opportunities. The program also provides Biblical counselling for those in need, and computer skills training. Since its inception the program has helped thousands of families and continues to make a daily, significant impact in its community.
