Relay for Life of Winter Haven 2013

Brooks Law Group makes it to the “BRONZE LEVEL” in Fundraising for Cancer Research and Prevention

 WINTER HAVEN, FL –This is the 2nd year the Brooks Law Group put a team together for the Relay for Life of Winter Haven. The Relay for Life is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society (ACS) which provides funding for Cancer Prevention Research in an effort to eliminate Cancer. This year, it was held at Lake Region High School in Eagle Lake on April 19th and April 20th. The Brooks Law Group’s team, “Team Brooks,” had a goal to raise $2500.00. Last year, the team made it to the “Rising Star Level” of $1,000 and was awarded “Rookie of the Year.” This award was presented by the Relay for Life of Winter Haven Committee because the team joined the Relay only a couple months before the event and stuck it out, persevering to raise money until the deadline.  They are proud to announce that they made it to their goal of raising $2500.00 – making it to the “Bronze Level” of the established Team Fundraising Club Levels.

Brooks Law Group is a Personal Injury and Social Security Disability Law Firm with offices in Winter Haven, Lakeland, and Tampa, Florida. The firm was founded in 1992 and recently, in the past couple years, really started reaching out to the community in many different ways. The firm participates in the “Smoke on the Water” BBQ competition to raise money for the Citrus Center Boys and Girls Club and the Education Health and Wellness Expo.  The one event, however, that really touches their hearts is the Relay for Life of Winter Haven. Almost everyone on the team has had a family member or they, themselves have been affected by cancer in some way

Fundraising for the Relay for Life of Winter Haven goes on all year-round. This year, “Team Brooks” held a few fundraising events. One successful fundraiser was team member, Rafael Martin’s “50 Mile Run.” That event alone raised over $1,000.00 for the team. The team also held a drawing for a 1 hour massage, held a yard sale, and car wash. There is also a lot of fundraising that goes on at the actual Relay itself. This year, the team sold flavored iced coffee – in the spirit of the all-night-long walk to fight Cancer.

The Brooks Law Group is passionate about helping our community and being a part of the “big picture.” The firm practices personal injury law and social security disability law. For more information about their services, please call Brooks Law Group at 888-WE-MEAN-IT (888-936-3264) or visit their website at www.brookslawgroup.com.

Local Law Firm Celebrates 2nd Annual “Adopt a Family for Christmas”

 WINTER HAVEN, FL –Brooks Law Group, with offices in Lakeland, Winter Haven, and Tampa is excited about being able to donate gifts to a family of 6 for Christmas this year. The firm purchased gifts for Elizabeth Castillo, a single mom with 5 kids. Castillo expressed a sincere concern about not being able to afford to buy Christmas presents for her children this year. “It fills us with joy to be able to help a family in need, especially around this time of year,” says Steve Brooks, founder and president of Brooks Law Group, PA.

Last year, the firm worked with the Women’s Resource Center of Winter Haven, to adopt a family of 4 and provide them with gifts. Each year, the firm hopes to increase its giving. It is really admirable to see a law firm who cares so much about the local community. Castillo’s children: Carson 8, Zaniel 10, Makayla 14, Cody 16, and Tyler 20 are not expecting to have their wish lists fulfilled this year. It warms Elizabeth Castillo’s heart to know that her children will wake up to see those presents under the tree on Christmas morning.

Carson and Zaniel are very close in age so Castillo suggested that they receive similar gifts so they can play together. The two boys will be getting the remote control cars that they have been raving about for quite some time along with a few other gifts. Brooks Law Group is not only a great firm when it comes to winning cases, but it is also a firm that makes dreams come true for the less fortunate.

Brooks Law Group, with offices in Winter Haven, Lakeland, and Tampa, can be reached at 888-WE-MEAN-IT (888-936-3264) or you can visit their website at www.brookslawgroup.com. This firm specializes in Personal Injury, Wrongful Death, and Social Security Disability cases.

BROOKS LAW GROUP AWARDED ROOKIE OF THE YEAR

Their Experience with the 2012 Relay for Life of Winter Haven

 WINTER HAVEN, FL -For the very first time, Brooks Law Group participated in the Winter Haven Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society. It was a very rewarding event to say the least. Team Brooks started out a little late, yet persevered to raise a total of $2,500.00. As a result of the dedication, fundraising, and attendance to pre-Relay meetings, Brooks Law Group was awarded Rookie of the Year!

The Relay for life is a yearly event that happens all over the United States and the cause is to raise money for Cancer prevention. It is an overnight camping event where teams of people camp around track. Food, games, and activities hosted by all the different local teams, provide entertainment and fundraising opportunities. Melissa LaRock, one of the Winter Haven Event Coordinators, said “We are not going to stop Relaying until we meet our goal of Cancer Prevention.” This event touches the lives of many because SO many people have a family member, friend, or they, themselves have or have had cancer.  The motto of the Relay for Life is for “More Birthdays.”

After every Relay, there is an awards ceremony. This awards ceremony has several different kinds of special acknowledgements for the selfless effort done for Cancer Prevention by the Relay teams. Each team is awarded based on how much money they raise, their camp site decorations, Relay Involvement…etc. The Nationwide Team Fundraising club levels are Rising Star Level ($1,000), Bronze Level ($2,500), Silver Level ($3,500), Gold Level ($5,000), Platinum Level ($7,500)….and the list goes on. The goal is to raise as much money as possible. This year, Brooks Law Group was a Rising Star.

Next year, the team is going for the GOLD!!! For Rookie of the year, Brooks Law Group won a hand-painted plaque made by R.O.C.K. Camp (Reaching Out to Cancer Kids) at Camp Boggy Creek.  It’s a camp where kids with cancer can go and just be kids!  It’s free for these kids to go and this is one of the programs that are money goes to!  It’s a wonderful program.  They have medical professionals on staff there for their illness but as long as they are feeling OK, they can do all of the camp stuff and just have fun.  These kids made pictures and then the Event Co-Chairs Tammy Villanueva and Melissa LaRock took the pictures and made them into those plaques to give away as thank you gifts.

In 1992, Brooks Law Group opened its very first office in Winter Haven, Florida.  It was in a small, two –story house, down the street from what is now known as their “First Street Office and Annex.”   Since then, the law firm has continued to grow and expand, taking on more clients in Polk and Hillsborough County.   The Brooks Law Group now has two offices in Winter Haven, one in Tampa, and as of October 1st, one in Lakeland.  The new office is located at 625 Commerce Drive, Suite 203 Lakeland, FL 33813.  It is directly across the street from the U. S. Post Office and Social Security Administration, off South Florida Avenue.

Debi Silver, Head Case Manager of the new Lakeland Office, has been with the Brooks Law Group for over 8 years.  Anyone arriving at the Lakeland Office will meet her and be welcomed by her warm smile and dedication to the Brooks Law Group clients.  The Lakeland office is truly an asset to the Firm because it reaches out to clients in not only Lakeland, but Mullbury, Zephryhills, Plant City, and other surrounding areas.

As Brooks Law Group continues to grow, the firm, its lawyers and staff remain committed to the clients’ best interest. They express, through their work, that their job is to defend the injured and disabled when they need it the most.
