Gaskins Bennett Birrell Schupp LLP takes great pride in serving and improving our local community.  These values are reflected in the substantial volunteer work to which our attorneys are committed.


We quickly responded to the tragic collapse of the I-35W bridge and joined other experienced plaintiff’s trial lawyers in the “Bridge Consortium” in pro bono representation of the victims.  The “Bridge Consortium” utilized our expertise in dealing with governmental immunities to analyze potential claims for the victims.  We also represented nine individuals, who were either on the bridge when it fell or lost loved ones in the tragedy, in their claims against the State of Minnesota.

We have worked with established organizations such as the Volunteer Lawyers Network to assist those who cannot afford legal counsel.

Our attorneys share their talents and serve on a variety of educational, arts, religious, political and health care related non-profits, including:

  • Annunciation School Board
  • Ragamala Dance
  • National Ataxia Foundation
  • Volunteer Lawyers Network

Other attorneys volunteer and serve on their church and synagogue councils, coach children’s sports teams, teach continuing legal education classes, publish articles, lecture at local law schools, and mentor law students.


Our firm gives back to the community by donating to numerous local and national organizations.
