Giving Back To The Community
It's important to us not just to be the best lawyers that we can be, but also to help our community be the best that it can be. We support local programs and have also created some of our own programs as part of our commitment to the community. Below are some of our favorite programs that we are involved in to help our community be stronger.
- Alexis & Mark Breyer
The Husband and Wife Law Team Teacher Appreciation Program
Coming from a family of teachers, Mark Breyer saw first hand how much a teacher puts into their classroom to provide the best education for their students, spending upwards of $400 out of their own pocket every year. Mark and Alexis started the Husband and Wife Law Team Teacher Appre-ciation Program to recognize teachers who go above and beyond. Alexis and Mark award one lucky teacher $250 every month for classroom supplies. Each month a teacher is chosen based on voting and subjective measures. The teacher is surprised each month not just with a $250.00 gift certificate but also with a classroom pizza party. Below is a video of one teacher being surprised. What a great feeling it was to surprise this teacher and all the other teachers who have been chosen as teacher of the month. To nominate a teacher, go to BreyerLaw.com/LawyersForTeachers. Maybe your favorite teacher will win!
Spreading a message of safety for Arizona Motorcycle Riders
After helping hundreds of injured motorcyclists after an accident tragically altered their lives, Mark and Alexis Breyer wanted to do something to prevent those accidents from happening in the first place. Mark Breyer is now a part of the board of the Arizona Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Foundation, working to make riding safer for all on the roads. Mark frequently speaks at motorcycle clubs and other motorcycle events. Mark and Alexis have also written, "The Arizona Motorcycle Book" which is a free guide to motorcycle riders for riders to know their legal rights. Many riders are not familiar with the laws, especially the helmet law and how it can be used against them. Mark hopes that his speaking engagements and The Arizona Motorcycle Book is getting the word out to riders so that they know what to do when they are in an accident. The Arizona Motorcycle Book is given out free to all riders in Arizona. You can request your free copy at www.ArizonaMotorcycleBook.com. Mark also helps to support events for motorcycle organizations and clubs that help promote motorcycle safety.
Working to reduce hit-and-run accidents
The Husband and Wife Law Team's Hit-and-Run Reward Program offers up to $1,000 for a tip that leads to the arrest and felony conviction of a hit and run driver. Many injured victims come to the Husband and Wife Law Team as a result of a hit and run accident; offering this anonymous tip line will hopefully discourage people from leaving the scene of an accident. Informants can call 1-800-6-Hit-n-Run.
The Husband and Wife Law Team have sponsored scholarships for students. The Husband and Wife Law Team's Viral Video Scholarship Contest was awarded in 2011 and 2012 to talented students who created a public service announcement encouraging safe driving practices. The videos were open to public voting and the winner was awarded a scholarship to their school. This type of scholarship helps to promote to young drivers the importance of safe driving. The Husband and Wife Law Team also aired the winning public service announcement for 2012 on TV to share the public announcement with all of Arizona viewers.
Husband And Wife Law Team Supports Local Causes
Mark and Alexis Breyer try to be as involved in their community as possible. They support local schools, booster clubs, and sport clubs. Alexis and Mark helped with donations to the YMCA, religious organizations, motorcycle clubs, organizations fighting for the injured, wrongful death victims, girl scouts, Jump For The Cure, MADD, low rider organizations, paper for teachers, and more.
Alexis and Mark each year hold a March Madness Pool to create community involvement. Last year's pool winner received $1,000. The tournament is free to join and occurs every March during March Madness. This is a way to bring sports into the lives of children as well.
Sharing their knowledge
Between Mark and Alexis, there is over 30 years of experience dealing with injury law. As a public service to injured Arizonans, they have written several legal guides using their combined knowledge, detailing what everyone needs to know about Arizona law. These books are offered for free to help people understand how their legal rights. The most popular book described above is The Arizona Motorcycle Book along with The Arizona Injury Book also known as "The 13 Biggest Mistakes That Can Destroy Your Arizona Injury Claim." This book guides those who have been injured to understand their legal rights. Alexis and Mark offer this book free.
Community Appreciation Dinners
Mark and Alexis have sponsored community appreciation dinners wherein members of the community have been invited to a free dinner. This is an opportunity to meet members of the community who have reached out for our help and for Alexis and Mark to give back and to show their appreciation. Recent dinners took place at Hong Kong Gourmet Buffet, Red Devil Italian Restaurant and Pizza, Joe's Real BBQ, and more restaurants through out the Valley.
