Congratulations to Gravis Law on being named the Regional Chamber's Member of the Month for March 2021!
Since they were founded in 2013, Gravis Law has grown rapidly – now counting fourteen offices in five states across the nation. CEO Brett Spooner has been an important member of the Chamber for many years, serving on our Board of Directors, Executive Committee, and Regional Affairs Committee. If you attended our last luncheon, you may remember that Gravis recently upgraded their membership to the top tier, Visionary level.
Gravis has stepped up in multiple ways throughout the pandemic. In January, Gravis purchased ten CO2 monitors to donate to local restaurants, coffee shops, and wineries to help them open indoors and comply with the restrictions in place. Gravis employees also donate their time to multiple non-profits in the community, including Benton Franklin Legal Aid and Domestic Violence Services of Benton and Franklin Counties — offering pro bono work to those in need.
The firm has also shown their dedication to diversity and inclusion through their FAIR initiative. FAIR, which stands for Fairness Accountability Inclusion and Reform, seeks out, acknowledges, and takes action to address disparities across the legal system. Gravis encourages staff to participate in quarterly FAIR challenges that focus on combating systemic injustice.
Congratulations to Gravis Law, our March Member of the Month.
