2007 Alum Leads Law Firm in Collecting
More Than 6,500 Pounds of Food
Jeremy R. Moss, a 2007 graduate of the Columbus School of Law, led the Alexandria, VA-based law firm MercerTrigiani in placing second among small law firms in Northern Virginia by raising 6,549 pounds of food in the Third Annual Legal Food Frenzy. MercerTrigiani, composed of six attorneys, three paralegals and eight support staff members in offices in Alexandria and Richmond, collected assorted food items that included bags of flour and rice, boxes of cereal and pasta and cans of soups and meats for the Capitol Area Food Bank.
The Legal Food Frenzy, which ran from March 30 through April 10, is a collaborative project sponsored by the Attorney General's Office, the Virginia Bar Association and the Federation of Virginia Food Banks.
According to a news release issued by the Office of the Attorney General, 216 law firms across Virginia raised the equivalent of more than 1.6 million pounds of food for the hungry. The statewide competition pitted law firms against each other to help the hungry and beat its goal of 1.5 million pounds.
