At Jones Jones LLC, we understand that one of the biggest reasons our firm has been able to build an illustrious 100-year history is the strong relationships we have formed both with clients and the communities in which we operate.
It’s those relationships that have created a focus on social consciousness that extends throughout our organization. We encourage attorneys and staff to not just give back through resources but to also pitch in and become involved in charitable endeavors.
We are proud that our impact extends beyond providing legal defense in the insurance industry to providing help to community members in need.
ICD is a not-for-profit workforce development organization based in New York City whose mission is to help people transform their lives through career development and employment.
The organization provides individuals – mostly adults, veterans and entry level employees – with vocational evaluation, career planning services, a job skills training program and job placement services.
As part of our partnership with ICD, Jones Jones has taken on employees who otherwise have barriers to entry into employment, and assign them job responsibilities for which they receive compensation.
In other words, our attorneys aren’t just litigating and encouraging workers to return to work … we are also practicing what we preach.
As professionals who are deeply involved in this industry, we understand how challenging it can often be for an employer to take on an individual who has a barrier to entry into the workplace, and we are extremely proud that we can play a small role through our partnership with ICD in helping some of these deserving individuals reenter the workforce.

Kids’ Chance of New York
Kids’ Chance of New York is a nonprofit that was created with the purpose of providing scholarships for college and vocational education to the children of New York workers who have been fatally or seriously injured in a work-related accident that also resulted in financial need.
As a workers’ compensation defense firm, we have seen firsthand the impact workplace injuries have not only on injured workers but also on their families.
Our relationship with Kids’ Chance of New York allows us to give back to the families of injured workers in a way that we wouldn’t be able to through our professional legal services.
This is important because just like a majority of our clients, we believe that workers' compensation should not be a significantly litigious or impersonal interaction. The charitable efforts of Kids’ Chance of New York enable us to demonstrate that belief.
Jones Jones LLC has been a proud sponsor of Kids’ Chance of New York for years and even our firm’s Executive Partner, Matt Jones, is a member of their Board of Directors.

Our altruistic nature is a tradition that we are truly proud of at Jones Jones LLC.
Through our extensive knowledge of the insurance industry, we have been able to spot areas of need and have aligned with charities that address those needs.
It gives us great satisfaction to make a positive difference in people’s lives through support, leadership and volunteerism.
