Ashcraft & Gerel Gives Back

When Lee Ashcraft and Martin Gerel founded Ashcraft & Gerel in 1953, they built it on the principle of helping people. And, in the 65 years since, we have continued this commitment by working to strengthen the communities we serve.

One example is our investment in the Washington, D.C. union movement. Our attorneys frequently volunteer their time to meet with and speak to local unions on labor laws and workers’ rights. Ashcraft & Gerel has been named the UFCW Minority Coalition of the Year for our service to the union movement.

More than 25 years ago, we also established The Martin E. Gerel Memorial Scholarship, which is offered to Washington metropolitan union members and their families to help with the high cost of education. Each year, we award a one-time grant of $5,000 to an eligible student for education expenses.

Ashcraft & Gerel is proud to partner with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to present the A&G Thankfulness 5K. Taking a socially distanced platform amid COVID-19, this Thanksgiving run/walk aims to connect our clients, employees, and networks to honor people affected by pancreatic cancer. Join us from Nov. 23rd to 29th. Register here.

Contact us today to learn more about our community involvement and the ways in which our attorneys serve others in Washington, D.C., Virginia, and Maryland.
