Community Service

Collectively and separately, the attorneys and staff at Telan, Meltz, Wallace & Eide, P.A. have strong ties to the community, translating into a passion for community services and civic involvement. Our law firm encourages all of its working members to make a difference in the community by pursuing charitable community work meaningful to them.  We always look forward to contributing through monetary donations or our time to assist with worthy service-focused events.  Across the firm, our attorneys and staff have volunteered in a range of affiliations.  Examples are educational programs, pro-bono legal services, promotion of cultural affairs and the arts, and services to improve the community’s health and safety. Our endeavors are aimed at learning the challenges of our neighbors and helping to improve their lives.

Attorney Walter A. Ketcham recalls, with pride, a recent and notable experience that touched the hearts of us all. As we consider education a top priority, the law firm recently sponsored a community event to collect school supplies and backpacks. Telan, Meltz, Wallace & Eide, P.A. matched whatever was collected in the community. Backpacks and school supplies were distributed to disadvantaged children at a local elementary school.  It was a highly successful event, and many carloads of backpacks and supplies were delivered to the students. It was a very emotional and gratifying experience to contribute to the learning and future of children in need.
