Community Impact

Ashcraft & Gerel Gives Back

When Lee Ashcraft and Martin Gerel founded Ashcraft & Gerel in 1953, they built it on the principle of helping people. In the 65 years since, we have represented our neighbors and fellow community members in a myriad of injury cases, seeking the justice they deserve and recovering more than a billion dollars in compensation to help them get back on their feet.

Our work does not end when we step outside the courtroom; it extends into working to strengthen the communities we serve through volunteer work, scholarships, raising awareness about certain issues, and more.

A&G Thankfulness 5K

Raising Awareness About Pancreatic Cancer

In November 2020, Ashcraft & Gerel was proud to partner with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in presenting the A&G Thankfulness 5K. In light of COVID-19, the run took a socially distanced platform, virtually connecting clients, employees, and networks in order to honor individuals and families impacted by pancreatic cancer.

A Forward Push for Labor Laws & Workers’ Rights

Educating Union Members on Their Rights in the Workplace

Our firm is proud to continually invest 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.

The Martin E. Gerel Memorial Scholarship

Helping Union Members and Their Families Pursue Higher Education

At Ashcraft & Gerel, our legal team understands the value of higher education and the doors it can open for a person. That’s why we established The Martin E. Gerel Memorial Scholarship more than 25 years ago to help Washington metropolitan union members and their families with the rising costs of education. Each year, we award a one-time grant of $5,000 to an eligible student for educational expenses.
