Farris, Riley & Pitt, LLP is dedicated to helping our local community. Some of our recent community service is listed below.
Many of our clients suffer catastrophic injuries, so we partnered with Lewis & Feldman to donate smart kits to UAB Spain Rehabilitation Center patients. With the help of a few of our attorneys, we created this video to demonstrate how to install and use each device in your smart kit.
The devices in the smart kits will help those patients who are now in need of assistance with some of the things we take for granted in our day-to-day lives, such as turning on/off the lights or television, answering the phone, playing music or even finding out the day’s news or weather.
The smart kit includes:
– One Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Generation)
– Two Sengled Smart LED Lights and a Hub
– Four Teckin Smart Sockets
– One Amazon Fire TV Stick

Children’s of Alabama
Each August for the past seven years, FRP hosts a radiothon for Children’s of Alabama. In 2019, the Music and Miracles Radiothon raised $71,333 for Children’s of Alabama. As a personal injury law firm, the positive impact Children’s of Alabama has on our community and beyond sits closely with us. We have a lot of clients whose children have had a positive experience at Children’s of Alabama. Therefore, our largest community outreach project focuses on making miracles happen for children who are suffering. To learn more about the Music and Miracles Radiothon watch this video:

Distracted Driving Seminars
Our legal team is passionate about keeping our roads safe. Each year, we attend the Living Stones Temple’s health fair to educate new and experienced drivers about types of distracted driving and how to prevent it. We have also spoken to numerous local high schools and companies on the dangers of distracted driving – most recently we educated the fleet team leaders at Satellites Unlimited LLC.
