Giving Back in Our Community

Our commitment to our community extends beyond the walls of the firm. Giving back is a core value at Hemenway & Barnes. Our professionals devote time to the communities in which we work and live, providing pro bono legal services, volunteering, and performing days of service as a firm. We weave our commitment to diversity and community into the work we do, the vendors with whom we do business and our hiring practices. Ours is an open culture where neighbor helps neighbor.

Helping those in need

Finding Inspiration

Our clients, Jessica Kensky and Patrick Downes, published the book, "Rescue & Jessica". The inspiring story of a girl and her service dog is based on the real-life partnership between the book's author and her service dog, Rescue.
