Bartlett Legal Group’s 2017 Charity Selections
At Bartlett Legal Group, we believe in giving back through charity. We represent people whose lives have been forever altered by the negligent, reckless and intentional actions of others. We strive to protect the rights of our clients and to give voices to the victims of tragedies. In 2015 Bartlett Legal Group instituted its Giving Back program. Attorney Frank Bartlett has pledged to donate a portion of every dollar earned in the representation of his personal injury clients to charitable organizations. This year’s primary charities are:
Hope After Loss is a community of women and men who grieve the loss of a pregnancy or infant. Through peer support, burial assistance, education, and awareness initiatives, we provide connections, comfort, and care to those who have experienced the loss of a baby.

Colin’s Crew is committed to raising funds through grass roots fundraising efforts to support families affected by childhood cancer. Colin’s Crew was inspired by friends and family of a brave boy, Colin Westbrook. Colin was your typically two-year-old when he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, (“ALL”) back in October 2009, just days after his second birthday.
Colin’s Crew was originally formed to provide support to the Westbrook family. As Colin continues to do well, Colin’s Crew is planning fundraisers to assist families in the same situation as the Westbrook’s
Over $20,000 was raised for Colin’s Crew – Thank you!

We have the utmost respect for the men and women of our armed forces who give of themselves, day in and day out, to protect our freedoms and our way of life. All too often, however, that protection comes at a great physical, mental and psychological price.
Realizing the sacrifices made by the men and women of the military, in 2015 we continue to support military veterans. Attorney Bartlett has selected the Kappa Sigma Fraternity’s 2015 Military Heroes Campaign charity.
Kappa Sigma’s Military Heroes Campaign was designed to honor and aid the thousands of wounded military veterans returning from active duty. The Military Heroes Campaign provides charitable donations to organizations such as the Fisher House and other entities. The Fisher House Foundation, is a segment of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund that provides free housing to wounded veterans and their families throughout the duration of rehabilitation.
The Fisher House Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides a network of 38 comfort homes on the grounds of military and VA major medical centers. The houses are 5,000 to 16,000 square foot units, with up to 21 suites, donated to the military and Department of Veterans Affairs. The Foundation provides support to families of patients receiving care at the nearby medical center. Further information on the work of Fisher House Foundation, can be found at www.fisherhouse.org or by calling 888-294-8560.
