DOWNEY - Local law firm Tredway Lumsdaine & Doyle (TLD) has partnered with a local nonprofit, Working Wardrobes, to launch "Law Suits & Legal Briefs," which provides gently-used business suits and accessories to men and women seeking employment.Along with the clothing, TLD and Working Wardrobes provide monetary gifts to purchase underwear. All four TLD offices - Downey, Long Beach, Irvine and Beverly Hills - are accepting donations through the end of July. The campaign started June 5 with an event in Costa Mesa in which 40 TLC employees - including attorneys and administrative staff - worked with 20 people to help them select the right "law suit." The 20 individuals came from Phoenix House, a nonprofit drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. In addition to the suits, they also received career guidance and personal grooming services to help boost their confidence as they strive to get their lives back on track. TLD officials said they hope the program catches on with other area law firms. For more information on how to donate a suit, call Working Wardrobes at (714) 210-2460 or TLD at (949) 756-0684.
