Community Involvement, Sponsorship & Social Responsibility
Curcio Bergeron’s success has been a result of one-to-one relationships with their clients and employees. We are forever thankful for the success we have had and like to pay it forward by donating our time, talents, and money to worthy community groups and programs to thank the community for their support and help make our community a better place to work and live. Curcio Bergeron supports many charities but have highlighted a few below:
Curcio Bergeron is part of the Injury Board, an association of experienced trial attorneys practicing both in the United States and the United Kingdom. In order to become a member of Injury Board an attorney must prove his or her commitment to the four key areas that define the best of the legal profession: Relationships, Leadership, Community, and Results. Each year the Injury Board hosts a Day of Action, a nationwide community outreach effort hosted by the Injury Board to bring together plantiffs’ firms from across the U.S., all working for the same cause on the same day. Through our involvement with Injury Board, Curcio Bergeron has volunteered and aided the United States Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Ronald McDonald House Charities, and the Boys and Girls Club of America.
The Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half Marathon & 6k is an exciting, exhilarating athletic challenge which begins and ends near the Woodrow Wilson Bridge in historic Old Town Alexandria. Created in 2010, it is ranked amongst the top 27 best half marathons in the United States by Runner’s World magazine (February 2013). The race benefits several non-proﬁt organizations, including Autism Speaks, Back on my Feet, Runningbrooke, Capital Area Food Bank, and Leukemia Lymphoma Society Team in Training. Curcio Bergeron is a major sponsor for the race and Tom volunteers his time by leading the elite runners on his bicycle.
HOBY is a leadership conference started by Hugh O’Brian, the TV actor known for portraying Wyatt Earp. He was influenced by humanitarian Dr. Albert Schweitzer during a 9 day volunteer trip to Africa and upon returning to the States, wanted to create something to teach young people to think for themselves through service and leadership. Thus the leadership conference was created, and now thousands of high school sophomores, including Michael, one of Tom’s sons, and Ally, our receptionist, learn about their own leadership skills and how to best utilize them. Since then, Curcio Bergeron has been an avid supporter of HOBY and sent Ally to the Virginia Conference this year to share her talents and inspire students to promote leadership and service in their communities.
Created in 1969, United Community Ministries exists to serve and provide for poor families in the Mount Vernon community of Alexandria, Virginia. Curcio Bergeron has been promoting UCM’s message for many years, through can food drives, monetary and physical donations, as well as volunteering with the organization. We strive to perpetuate the vision and mission of UCM by providing for, and empowering our community.

Public Appearances and Events
Our attorneys are active participants in professional classes and seminars. Here are some of their upcoming appearances.
Sugar Shack Donuts Alexandria was giving recognition and delicious rewards to area teachers with their #treats4teach program where teachers could be nominated for being excellent educators and role models. Our very own Jennifer Porter recently nominated her children’ elementary school and galvanized her local community to “like” and “share” the nomination more than 100 times. She had the fun job of delivering 12 dozen donuts to the teachers and staff at North Springfield Elementary School. Look at all those excited faces! (We’re jealous she didn’t bring any to the office!)
Here’s a picture of Steve, Jennifer, and Tom at the annual Virginia Trial Lawyers Association Convention!
Tom is very active in the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association having served as President for one year and having been on the Executive Council for the last few years!
