Lawyers are at their best when they help their clients obtain fairness, dignity and justice from the legal system. But lawyers are also members of a wider community, and helping people live better lives should not stop at the courthouse door. That is why Mr. Salasky regularly donates to charity from the proceeds of his legal “wins”, including his favored charities The Foodbank Of Southeastern Virginia, The United Way, and Mazon (a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds). Feeding the hungry is a goal worthy of everyone. Mr. Salasky has also served on the Board of Directors of the Tidewater Jewish Community Center including chairing a number of committees, has been active with the Norfolk Emergency Shelter Team, and has participated over the years in other local organizations and groups. Please consider making a donation today to The Foodbank Of Southeastern Virginia!
