Community

At BoyarMiller, we believe when our community thrives, so does our business. We are committed to making a positive impact with the same vigor that characterizes our practice of law.

As part of our Mission to provide counsel beyond expectations, build lasting relationships and make a meaningful difference in people’s lives, our firm – and our individual attorneys – are active, proud participants in a number of Houston’s charitable organizations. Giving back not only expands our passion for life, it also connects us to communities and organizations that share our commitment.

We have had the privilege to work with a number of great causes and organizations on an individual level and as a firm. Most recently, we worked with:

SEARCH Homeless Services

SEARCH Homeless Services is a cause that is close to the hearts of many BoyarMiller attorneys. Bill Boyar and Chris Hanslik both serve on the Board of Directors with Bill having served as Board Chair twice.  Chris Hanslik, with his wife Catherine, chaired the 2013 Annual Luncheon. Because SEARCH’s mission to engage, stabilize, educate, employ and house the homeless individuals and families of Houston is so important to us, we get involved as a firm in several ways.

Entrepreneur’s Organization Houston

EO Houston connects young entrepreneurs and enables them to learn and grow from each other, leading to greater business success and enriched personal lives. BoyarMiller is a strategic partner in EO. We regularly sponsor EO Houston events including the clay shoot and Roundup.  Bill Boyar  had the opportunity to speak to the chapter about how purpose has made all the difference at our firm. View his video.

The Texas Bowl

Chris Hanslik is a Past Chair and current Board Member of The Texas Bowl.  The firm has served as a sponsor and participant in the Texas Bowl’s annual Gridiron Legends Gold Tournament which benefits the DePelchin Children’s Center, one of the largest providers of mental health, foster care and adoption services in Texas. Although the center is based in Houston, they serve children and families in Austin, Brownwood, Lubbock, San Antonio and all across Texas.

KIPP Houston Public Schools

Developing our people to be great professionals is one of the core values at BoyarMiller. And we know this foundation often starts early in life, which is the reason we support KIPP Houston Public Schools. KIPP’s mission to develop under-served students with the academic skills, intellectual habits and qualities of character necessary to succeed truly resonates with what we believe to be important.

This past summer, we hosted a student who was part of the KIPP Through College Future Focus program, which helps students identify careers of interest, build critical job skills, and network with potential employers. BoyarMiller participated in KIPP’s 2013 Season of Gratitude Holiday Drive, which benefits students in need at the KIPP Dream Elementary and KIPP 3D Academy Middle School campuses. Bill Boyar serves as the Board Chair at KIPP.
