Community Involvement

Koskoff legal team at Connecticut Food Bank event

At Koskoff, we have a strong culture of caring – not just for our clients but for the community as well. We provide much-needed financial support for organizations that are meaningful to us and to our clients – in Bridgeport, throughout the state, and nationally. We also recognize that to truly care means commitment beyond our checkbook. Our attorneys and staff contribute generously through participation in events, volunteering, board membership, and pro-bono work.

“Our firm fosters, encourages and supports community service for its employees. We are all encouraged to donate and contribute in any way we can.

And the attorneys lead by example.

I am incredibly proud to be a part of an office – and a group of people – who are so committed to doing good.”


Preston Tisdale speaking at event
“Partnership with the Greater Bridgeport and CT communities is a key component of the Koskoff mission. To advance that partnership through civic engagement has been a profoundly rewarding experience for me. Koskoff’s and my commitment to the well-being of our community has meaningfully furthered our desire to achieve a positive impact on the lives of many.”

– Preston

“I am proud that for many years our office and staff have provided Christmas gifts to underprivileged children, and support the CT Food Bank, the Bridgeport Rescue Mission, and many other worthwhile causes. For the past 15 years we have collected winter coats for adults and children and have been fortunate to be able to distribute more than 1500 coats along with hats, scarves, and gloves. I believe that we have an obligation to be part of, and give back to, the community that we practice in, and that is ingrained in the Koskoff culture.”

– Joel

“Koskoff has always been committed to improving the lives of our clients. I am honored to be a Board member of the Brain Injury Alliance of CT, which provides invaluable services to some of our clients. And I am proud to be a member of a firm that is so dedicated to giving back to the community. It’s a big part of who we are — as a firm and as individuals.”
