Our Community

We are deeply committed to the Central Texas community

At Maxwell Locke & Ritter, we believe that vibrant and engaged communities happen when there are dedicated people 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 and committees, and in other volunteer capacities to over 225 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 positive ways.

SERVING 290+ 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 290 different organizations — many of which are nonprofit boards or committee appointments — as well as community-sponsored events throughout the year.
