Principled Advocacy For Families And Individuals With Disabilities And The Professionals Who Serve Them

How We Give Back In Our Community

Integrity and kindness are the pillars of our practice at Monahan Law Group, LLC. Our mission to serve those in need extends beyond our legal services. We truly take this mission to heart.

That is why our attorneys offer our talents and resources in multiple ways throughout Illinois. Through fundraisers, volunteer efforts and charitable giving, we strive to make a difference in the lives of others. We know that every act matters.

Living Our Mission

Our team members contribute to the community in the following ways and more:

  • Joseph T. Monahan has served in several positions with nonprofit organizations, including the Foundation for Human Development and Chicago Volunteer Legal Society (CVLS). He also advocates for children in probate cases at no cost.
  • Amy E. McCarty has served as a committee member, board member and president of the Chicago Meals On Wheels program. In addition, she is a member of the Misericordia Human Rights Commission. She also protects the interests of children in guardianship cases at no cost.
  • Carla D. Fiessinger contributes her legal knowledge to CVLS. Like her colleagues, she works pro bono to represent the interests of children in guardianship cases.

Philanthropy Is The Backbone Of Our Practice

Our work does not stop when we leave the office. Our purpose is greater than collecting a paycheck. We work hard to make a difference within our community and beyond.

  • Monahan Law Group, LLC has been an avid supporter of Meals on Wheels Chicago (MOWC) for many years. Partner, Amy McCarty, currently serves as President of the Executive Board, and Laura Vertucci as an Associate Board Member.
    Over the past year, MOWC’s client population increased by 67% due to COVID-19. MOWC was quick to respond to the increased need for seniors and persons with disabilities who were homebound and impacted by the pandemic. In recognition of this heightened demand for support, our firm once again took action to support MOWC by participating in this year’s March for Meals 5K. We continued both our financial support as an event sponsor as well as joining in the “virtual” march with 21 staff members moving and shaking, raising over $13,000.00!
