At The Axelrod Firm, we believe in contributing to the community we serve and being the change we wish to see. Partners Sheryl Axelrod and Lisa Savitt have devoted countless hours to serving the community, including by heading volunteer organizations and groups within them.

These organizations honored them for their work. Ms. Axelrod was awarded the TLAA Distinguished Service Award, the TLAA Women’s Champion Award, and the NAMWOLF Yolanda Coly Advocacy Award, Ms. Savitt was awarded the ABA Section of International Law Mayre Rasmussen Award, and The Axelrod Firm was awarded the Diversity Law Institute Award.
