Chartwell Law attorney, Adam T. Devine was selected as the recipient of the 2019 Chartwell Cares Award, now known as the Julie Sauerbrey Chartwell Cares Award. The award is given each year, to an employee of the firm who has demonstrated an abundance of “giving back” to the community, one of the core principles in which Chartwell Law was founded.
Mr. Devine, an attorney in Chartwell’s New York, NY office is involved with and has played an instrumental role with many community based organizations in 2019. An avid runner, he is as a member of the board of directors and team captain for Prospect Park Track Club located in Brooklyn, NY where he volunteers with youth running programs for elementary-aged school children, as well as helps to fundraise moneys to support the club. He is a monitor at the New York City Bar Association Lawyers Assistance Program where he facilitates programs for lawyers who are going through disciplinary proceedings, ensuring they receive the assistance needed to address compliance with their monitoring agreements and certifying demonstrated rehabilitation to the disciplinary committees. Mr. Devine is also a volunteer at Back on My Feet, a group that runs regularly with individuals in homeless or addiction and treatment centers with the goal of providing a sense of community and belonging for these individuals who are facing difficult circumstances.
Chartwell Cares is a year-round core principle of Chartwell Law. Demonstrated aptly by Sir Winston Churchill when he said, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” No-one better exemplifies this belief than Julie Sauerbrey, a paralegal in the firm’s Valley Forge, PA office. Ms. Sauerbrey consistently leads the Chartwell Cares initiative year after year by organizing various endeavors including the Caring for Kids holiday gift drive, Soles4Souls shoe drive, cooking to support families of the Ronald McDonald House, and the recent Feed the Need food drive. It is this spirit of generosity that has led the administrative committee of Chartwell Law to rename the Chartwell Cares Award to the Julie Sauerbrey Chartwell Cares Award.
