Love for Milwaukee is contagious! The spirit of love, support and giving back to the community inspire those who live in Milwaukee to make it better. At Hupy and Abraham, our desire to provide support for the less fortunate, to ensure top-notch education for our children, and to speak out against injustices is just as important as providing legal services.
Over the past three years, Hupy and Abraham has donated over $500,000 to more than 100 worthwhile organizations. Additionally, the firm sponsors dozens of local events and becomes personally involved with many others.
Sharing the Love
By sharing their professional skills. Attorney Mike Hupy is a founding member of the MJC (Milwaukee Justice Center). The mission of the MJC is to “utilize volunteers to address the unmet legal needs of Milwaukee County’s low-income unrepresented litigants through court-based programs and legal resources.” In 2012, Attorney Hupy pledged to give $100,000 to the MJC over the 3 years that followed. In March 2014, he delivered another monetary gift to the Center. When he is able, Attorney Hupy stops by the MJC to answer questions from clients. Lawyers, paralegals and law students come to volunteer their services to give the less fortunate proper access to the legal system. Over 10,000 clients were helped during 2014.
By supporting the right to quality education. In February 2014, Hupy and Abraham participated in the 4th Annual Louie M. Adams Back to School Educational Fair sponsored by the Men of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. -- Kappa Phi Chapter. This year, Hupy and Abraham contributed over 400 book bags for students from Milwaukee’s most disadvantaged ZIP codes. The book bags were filled with school supplies and distributed to students of all ages and in all grade levels.
By supporting the search for a cure. Hupy and Abraham has been a longtime supporter of the Wisconsin Breast Cancer Showhouse for the past decade, and Attorney Hupy continues to be an advisor for the organization. Hupy and Abraham attended the 2014 “Pinktacular Salute to Survivors Luncheon” in October that benefited the Wisconsin Breast Cancer Showhouse and included a fashion show featuring survivors of breast cancer and prostate cancer. Mike Hupy and his wife Suzanne Hupy were specially recognized for their personal sponsorship of the luncheon. Hupy and Abraham's support has allowed WBCS to fulfil its $1 million promise for a Breast Cancer Research Professorship.
By giving the gift of life. Hupy and Abraham lends support to the Blood Center of Wisconsin by participating in multiple blood drives a year. In 2014, over 30 employees took time out of their day to donate blood. Hupy and Abraham encourages employees to donate during their paid work time. Hupy employees know better than anyone that car accident victims often need blood donations to live.
Everyone at Hupy and Abraham firmly believes in doing well by doing good, and this means actively giving back to the community whenever possible. Beyond the aforementioned contributions, Hupy and Abraham receives thanks from numerous organizations for its participation, sponsorship and financial gifts including The Koos for Kids Organization, Second Harvest Foodbank, Wild Space Dance Company, the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, the NAACP Freedom Fund, Axemen Motorcycle Club and the Wounded Warriors Project.
