The firm’s success in helping personal injury, wrongful death and medical malpractice clients has allowed us to give back to the Rhode Island community in significant ways. Leonard Decof, the firm’s founder, created the Adele R. Decof Foundation to honor his late wife Adele, who battled breast cancer with grace and a vision of helping others. Since its start in the year 2000, the Foundation has helped support philanthropic activities in the state.

Today, the Adele R. Decof Cancer Center at the Roger Williams Medical Center supports research and treatment to improve the lives of cancer patients. In addition, the Adele R. Decof Cancer Treatment Center at the Miriam Hospital was dedicated in 2006, and in 2011 was rededicated as the Leonard and Adele R. Decof Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The firm, its lawyers and staff are also regular contributors and supporters for a number of charitable organizations, including hospitals, schools, colleges and local non-profit groups.
