Partner Barbara Marschalk, along with an attorney from Steward Trial Lawyers and the Butler Law Firm, have developed The People vs. Coivd19, a website centered around uniting defense and plaintiffs attorneys, to gather donations from the legal community to provide meals for healthcare workers and support local businesses. The People vs. Covid19 is linked to a GoFundMe page where website visitors can make donations. Once a donation has been made, their name will be included in the list of donors scrolling at the bottom of the page. The platform has proven to be successful, as it has reached $12,000 in donations as of Wednesday, April 8th. The use of #thePeoplevsCovid19 has been encouraged to help spread the word about the webpage.
“They said having Marschalk aboard has broadened the scope of their outreach.“Chris and I tend to know a lot of plaintiffs lawyers and personal injury lawyers, and of course we have some connections with the other side,” said Butler. “Once we got in touch with Barbara, we immediately started getting support from the defense side.” “With this project, we want to help the people who are helping our community, and show that lawyers can come together in times of need,” Marschalk said in a statement.”
