WE SUPPORT OUR FIRST RESPONDERS
We understand what it is like to be first on scene. We know what it takes to run in when everyone else is running out. We know what it is like to respond to crises and impossible situations day after day. We know what tolls your profession and your calling can have on your life and the unique difficulties you face as a result. One of our partners is a paramedic. As a lawyer, he has helped out many first responders.Devry Smith Frank LLP is here to help our brave paramedics, police officers and firefighters. Our knowledge of what you go through gives us the expertise to help with the particular legal problems first responders face in:
• Family Law
• Professional Standards and Discipline
• Consent, Capacity and Mental Health Issues
• Employment Law
• Insurance claims
• Personal Injury
• Wills and Powers of Attorney
• Education law

Since we know your selfless help to others, and what you have gone through, in addition to our understanding and advice, Devry Smith Frank LLP gives paramedics, police officers and firefighters *20% off their legal fees to show that we have got your back.
In addition, if your organization, group, or colleagues would like us to give a presentation on the legal issues that you face, we would be happy to organize one for free. It’s one more way we try to make things easier for you and help you focus back on helping others.
