Community Service

The firm was founded on a commitment to service. In 2008, that foundation was solidified when founding partner Bill Lawton formally committed the firm to community service and involvement. Since then, DRML employees have performed over 1000 hours a year of volunteer service. Attorneys and staff of DRML participate in service on a local and national level throughout the year, and the firm has a long-standing relationship with the Second Harvest Food Bank, Coalition for the Homeless, Children’s Home Society, Give Kids the World, Ronald McDonald House and many others. As part of our commitment to service, the firm’s attorneys also voluntarily participate in pro bono service, with many serving as Guardians ad Litem for abused and neglected children in the Central Florida area.

Seminars

DRML proudly offers multiple seminars throughout the year to assist clients, adjusters, carriers, and the community in achieving their continuing education credits and, more importantly, staying on up to date on current and trending legal topics and issues. We put on an annual Workers’ Compensation and Liability Seminar, as well as several ethics seminars throughout the year. We are also pleased to share that now offer in-person seminars or videoconference webinars to clients on an individual basis. Please contact our office anytime to schedule a seminar or webinar.

Donations/Fundraising

In addition to our donated and volunteered time, DRML has made significant monetary contributions to many Central Florida charitable organizations. Our firm also holds multiple fundraisers throughout the year to raise money to buy Christmas presents for children in foster care through the Orange County Legal Aid Society and the Guardian Ad Litem program; in 2021, DRML raised nearly $9,000 for GAL kids alone, and we have shopped for up to 80 kids per year since 2000. DRML staff and attorneys donate money throughout the year through ongoing internal fundraising efforts, and proudly, DRML matches every dollar that we raise.
