MLR

Community

We are deeply committed to the Central Texas community.

At Maxwell Locke & Ritter, we believe that vibrant and engaged communities only happen when there are dedicated people there to support them.  As a firm, we do this by providing service to more than 65 nonprofit clients and by offering our people time away from the office to participate on Boards, Committees and in other volunteer capacities to over 210 additional organizations.  One of our greatest strengths is in supporting our people to volunteer their time, talents and treasures in communities where they live and in activities that reach people in meaningful ways.

Serving over 275+ nonprofit organizations
in the greater Austin area

Individually and collectively, our people are making a huge difference in the community through active involvement in over 275 different organizations, many of which are nonprofit boards or committee appointments, as well as community sponsored events throughout the year.

Testimonials

There is a strong commitment to the community and ML&R encourages active involvement by its people.

If you are going to work in public accounting, MLR is far and away the best place to work. The firm’s commitment to family and community is unparalleled.

I don’t have to choose between a healthy home life, being a contributing member of my community and a successful career, rather, I am encouraged and supported to find a balance that works for my life as a whole.

Great values, great clients, care about our community and bright people with strong values.
