Charitable Giving and Community Service

Charitable giving and community service has been at the core of Corboy & Demetrio, a plaintiff’s personal injury law firm, since the firm began over 50 years ago. We believe that “giving back” and helping others are fundamental responsibilities and obligations for all of us. The firm’s time, treasure and talents are shared by supporting a wide range of charities and community and legal organizations. Each group we support serves others in our community who are in need of information, services, legal advice, and/or financial assistance.

Our Co-Founder Thomas Demetrio created Lawyers Lend-A-Hand while he was President of the Chicago Bar Association, and he both created and funds The Thomas A. Demetrio Award of Excellence.
