INVOLVED IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Our commitment to serving the community goes back to the firm’s inception. The spirit of the Gibson Law Group’s community service can be found in the support our lawyers regularly provide as unpaid legal advisors, board members and active volunteers to a broad range of non-profit and charitable organizations. A few of the community organizations we support include:

The Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce

The Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce

A diverse economic base is represented by manufacturing, high-tech, health care, financial, industrial and service-oriented businesses. Five of Irving’s approximately 50 Fortune 500 companies have chosen Irving for their global headquarters: Celanese, Commercial Metals, ExxonMobil, Fluor and Kimberly-Clark. Irving is home to more of the DFW Metroplex’s largest private and public companies than any other city except Dallas, including Citi, Microsoft, Verizon, NEC Corporation, Allstate Insurance Company, Time Warner Cable, RIM (BlackBerry), Aviall, Michaels Stores, Pioneer Natural Resources, CEC Entertainment and TXU Energy.

More than 65 foreign-owned companies operate subsidiaries here, giving Irving the distinction of being the third-leading city in Texas for foreign business investment. The presence of so many notable companies means a low unemployment rate — 5.9 percent compared to 6.9 percent statewide and 8.1 percent nationwide (May 2012) — and an enviable debt ratio. In fact, Irving is one of only a small number of cities in the United States that has earned a double AAA bond rating from both Standard and Poor’s and Moody’s Investors’ Services.

The city provides employment to more than 230,000 business professionals, making it the third-largest employment center in North Texas.

Education Empowers Foundation

Education Empowers Foundation

The Education Empowers Foundation for Educating Chitrali Kids is a non-profit organization committed to supporting the educational needs of the underprivileged children in Chitral. This region is located in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan and is the highest peak of the Hindu Kush mountain range stretching 25,289 ft. The terrain in this area is very dry, mountainous and is at risk of natural disasters, mainly earthquakes and floods.

The focus of the organization is to provide valuable support for children from three to sixteen-year-olds particularly those who are orphans, disabled and/or those who come from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Through the tireless efforts of the organization and their generous supporters, eligible children are given school uniforms, books, and stationery.  In addition, the organization has completed several important projects that will continue to have a positive impact on the lives of the Chitrali children for years to come. These include clearing playground space, the training of teachers and access to non-potable water for the school and in turn the entire village.

Judge Gibson and the Gibson Law Group are proud to support the valuable work of the Educating Chitrali Kids Organization.
