Community InvolvementCommunity Service Beyond the Courtroom
Berry Law’s dedication to the rights and well being of Nebraskans and Veterans goes beyond the courtroom. Berry Law is proud to sponsor and participate in a number of activities benefiting the lives of military servicemembers and every Nebraskan who values the warrior ethos.
To honor our Veterans and active military members, Berry Law and Creighton Athletics have teamed up for our Salute to Our Heroes – and we’d like to highlight you or a someone you know who has served our country in the past or is actively serving our country now.
Big Red Challenge
The constant challenges of service help forge America’s warriors into a strong and cohesive unit. Unfortunately, the sudden withdrawal from the stress and camaraderie can too often lead to a loss of purpose in Servicemembers and their families when they return to civilian life. Berry Law understands the need to provide supportive reintegration services and we are grateful to have had the opportunity to sponsor the Big Red Challenge, an adventure race that supports Veterans in their transition home.

100s Men Who Care
100s Men Who Care – Lincoln is a unique form of crowdfunding for nonprofits. Events are based around each attendee donating $100, which is later given to a local nonprofit selected by the group. Attendees nominate local nonprofits, three of which are picked at random to pitch why they deserve support and then the entire group votes to determine the winning nonprofit that will receive the funds. Berry Law has sent representatives to the events for several years in a row.
