Established in 1954, Mitchell, Williams, Selig, Gates & Woodyard, P.L.L.C. is a full-service corporate law firm that provides comprehensive legal services.
The Take Time To Give program was established in 2004 to celebrate the firm’s 50th anniversary, with the firm challenging every employee to donate 50 hours of their time to community service. In 2009, the firm began selecting a “primary” Take Time To Give charity annually donating volunteer hours, pro bono legal services and a $25,000 contribution. The Take Time To Give financial contribution has since increased to a $50,000 donation. In addition to the primary charity(s), the firm also supports over 100 charitable and community organizations throughout the year through sponsorships, financial contributions, leadership and volunteer service.
Through Take Time To Give, Mitchell Williams provides support to charitable organizations through volunteer hours, pro bono legal services and $50,000 in financial contributions. The firm will select organizations from the areas where the firm’s offices are located in Little Rock/Central Arkansas; Jonesboro/Northeast Arkansas; Rogers/Northwest Arkansas; and Austin, Texas.
