Our work at Ed benefits from so many of our partners and Christian & Small LLP is one of the best! Investing back into the lives of the children in Birmingham City Schools is what we love about Christian & Small LLP.
When offered the chance to be involved in some of the things we do at Ed, Christian & Small LLP leaped at the opportunity! Christian & Small LLP dedicated time to join Ed’s 10th grade Leadership and Democracy Conference, hosted a site visit for 9th graders, as well as helped in some other in-school sessions. “Christian & Small goes above and beyond whenever and however they are working with us and our students. Not only did they have a company-wide day of service to volunteer at our 10th grade Leadership and Democracy Conference, but they also participated in some of the in-school sessions leading up to that conference,” stated CeCe Lacey, Program Specialist at The Birmingham Education Foundation (Ed).
Both busy Christian & Small LLP partners and staff have been generous in spending their time with students through Ed: “The Birmingham Education Foundation provides such a wonderful service to Birmingham City Schools. While the importance of the enhanced educational opportunities the Foundation provides to Birmingham high school students cannot be overstated, after participating as a judge at the Foundation’s recent Leadership and Democracy Conference, I am equally thankful for the opportunity the Foundation afforded me – to witness first-hand the potential that so many Birmingham high school students possess and their eagerness to realize this potential,” says Richard M. Thayer, Partner at Christian & Small LLP. “I walked away from the Leadership and Democracy Conference as a firm believer in the Foundation’s mission, and with a renewed hope for the city of Birmingham’s future.”
Christian & Small LLP was created in July of 2000. The twenty founding members felt it was appropriate to emphasize the broad base of the firm’s practice and the technological efficiencies and investment that had allowed the firm formerly known as Rives & Peterson to grow to one of the preeminent firms in the southeast.
