Helping Others, Including Our Team: Our Firm’s Priority In And Out Of Court

One of the most rewarding aspects of owning a personal injury law firm is the opportunity to minister to not only our clients, but also our own team.  In fact, before we can focus on helping others effectively, I have come to strongly believe that we must first help each other at the firm so that we can indeed, help our clients and our community at large.  In today’s blog, I’d like to focus on our law firm culture here at Bottaro Law, specifically our Ministry Care Team that fuels all that we do for each other, our clients, and our community.

The Car Accident Law Firm That Practices Servant Leadership

For the first part of my career, I worked for an appellate judge and later, for several law firms in the personal injury field.  While I realized I had a passion for fighting for the rights of the injured against huge companies, too often in our industry I witnessed lawyers who did not truly care about their clients or staff, and lawyers who advertised in an untruthful or deceiving manner.  When I started handling Rhode Island and Massachusetts personal injury cases, I began to dream about starting a new type of injury law firm, a firm based first on servant leadership.

Servant leadership is the idea that we are all called to help others first, including honoring our clients and all teammates in a law firm.  It includes the idea that the more senior people in an organization such as attorneys, actually are open to receiving input and serving them as well to achieve our goals.

The Bottaro Law Difference: Loving On People Fueled By Our Ministry Care Team  

To help move forward our servant leadership vision, several years ago, my Legal Assistant Hannah Reimel volunteered to help me start a new committee at the law firm.

The idea was that we would form a rotating team to use our company’s blessings to minister to each other and our communities.  

First and foremost, our ministry care team is there to encourage our teammates.  So, 80% of the budget is devoted to our team. If a teammate is having a difficult season or even day, we are there for them. This may mean something as simple as flowers or candy. It also means that if someone has experienced a financial emergency, such as needing a car repair or incurring a doctor expense, we are there to provide financial assistance over and above their pay. The Care Team also plans and executes on our regular team events and firm functions such as on Friday afternoons.  We recently went to a hockey game together, and in the past have done concerts, bowling, rock climbing, etc.

Second, the Care Team offers financial assistance to local, national, and international organizations.  We recently gave to efforts to help those in Ukraine as well as the local food banks in Providence and Cranston for example. For some time now, we have sponsored Caroline, a young child in Uganda, who we assist and correspond with. 

Third, the Care Team also organizes paid volunteer service days.  We believe that in addition to giving, generosity is best experienced by giving our time and physical gifts. In this way, we recently had folks over at Higher Ground helping pack food and also making lunches for the area’s homeless.
