Munck Wilson Mandala and its attorneys and staff share a deep commitment to the communities where we live and work. Giving back is an important part of who we are, as a law firm and as individuals. We are proud to furnish our time, energy and financial support to a wide variety of civic, cultural and philanthropic organizations, including the following:

Head Start of Greater Dallas

HSGD offers free, high quality child development services to income eligible families with children ages 0-5 years old. HSGD is child-focused learning but also provides comprehensive services to the child’s family.
The mission of Hope's Door is to offer comprehensive intervention and prevention services to individuals and families affected by domestic violence and to provide education programs that enhance the community's capacity to respond. Hope’s Door operates a shelter and counseling center serving Collin and Dallas counties.
Hunger Busters is a Dallas-based charity focused on feeding kids and fueling futures by providing third meal of the day to food-insecure children. Over 137,000 (87%) of the children attending Dallas schools rely on school-subsidized breakfast and/or lunch as their only resource for food. All too often, these children go without dinner. Many of them have nothing to eat from school lunch one day until school breakfast the next. Hungry children are twice as likely to be absent from school than their peers not suffering from hunger. Research consistently shows that increasing the nutrition of a food-insecure child improves health, educational performance, and the opportunity to grow into a civic-minded adult.

Another component of our community service is the provision of pro bono legal services. We recognize that lawyers have a responsibility to help those who cannot afford legal representation. Through the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program, for example, we have provided pro bono services in family law matters, such as the enforcement of child support orders and the adoption of children removed from their homes by the Child Protective Services division of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
