At Greensfelder, our dedication to service extends to a broad community of professional, civic and charitable organizations.
Trade and business organizations
Supporting and taking leadership roles in organizations that matter to our clients is a priority for the firm.

We know the importance of supporting charitable nonprofit groups in our communities, and every attorney at the firm is encouraged to support the organizations important to them. Our employees participate in fundraising events for a bevy of causes, and the firm as a whole has lent philanthropic support to groups including the United Way and Operation Food Search.
We are committed to the advancement of the communities where our employees live and work. We support the St. Louis Regional Chamber, as well as the leadership training organization FOCUS St. Louis. When the St. Louis region faced civil unrest in the city of Ferguson and surrounding communities, Greensfelder supported the North County Inc. Regional Development Association’s efforts to help the businesses and residents who were directly affected get their lives back in order.
Our Belleville office places a priority on supporting business and arts endeavors in the southwest Illinois region, including the Greater Belleville Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Council Southwestern Illinois, Art on the Square and the Belleville Salute to the Arts.
Our attorneys are involved in the leadership of local, regional and national bar associations, supporting efforts to better the legal profession at large. In helping to promote continuing legal education, we work with groups including the Association of Corporate Counsel in St. Louis and Chicago to sponsor and present seminars on important legal topics. And through our support and pro bono service with legal aid groups such as Legal Services of Eastern Missouri and the Interfaith Legal Service for Immigrants, we bolster the overall services available to the most vulnerable in our communities.
In 2017, Greensfelder joined the inaugural class of law firms supporting the Missouri Coalition for the Right to Counsel. The coalition is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing pro bono representation to reduce the workload on the state public defender's office. Meanwhile, the firm also participated in the Chicago Bar Foundation's Investing in Justice Campaign, an effort to help ensure equal access to justice.
