Giving Back to Our Community
A Law Firm Committed to Giving Back to the Community
That's why we are deeply involved in community service projects, sponsorships, volunteering and other charity work throughout western Pennsylvania. We were extremely proud and humbled to receive a Pittsburgh Business Times 2018 Corporate Citizenship Award – to be recognized for something that you’re passionate about is a true honor.
Whether we're fighting drunk driving through public service campaigns or getting our hands dirty to beautify our neighborhoods, being Pittsburgh Proud—and western PA proud—means giving back to the communities that have given us so much for more than 30 years.
Below are some projects and causes that are near and dear to us.
COVID-19 Relief Efforts with United Way
We’re proud to partner with United Way branches in western and central Pennsylvania to support those in need during the COVID-19 crisis. Learn how you can get help meeting critical needs and how you can donate to Emergency Funds in your region:

We love Variety the Children's Charity, and the life-changing work they do on behalf of area children with disabilities. We've supported their MyBike for years, and we're excited to help get the word out about MyVoice, which gives a voice to children who've been diagnosed with communication disorders. See how MyVoice has changed the lives of 5-year-old Tyler and his family.

Preventing Unsafe Driving
At Edgar Snyder & Associates, our car accident injury attorneys have represented thousands of crash victims. So many accidents are caused by distracted or impaired drivers, and our law firm is taking steps to prevent unsafe driving practices by sponsoring the:
- Trooper Kenton Iwaniec TakeOff Memorial Race honoring Kenton Iwaniec, a Pennsylvania State Trooper who was killed by a drunk driver. The race raises awareness about the seriousness of impaired driving and encourages community support in reducing drunk driving deaths. It takes place each April at St. Vincent College in Latrobe, Kenton's alma mater.
- Teen driver safety programs
- Take a Cab program
Promoting Motorcycle Safety
We respect motorcyclists—not only because we represent them, but because we count ourselves among them. Our firm takes pride in promoting motorcycle safety through sponsorships and:
- The creation of Snyder's Riders, a community of motorcyclists committed to protecting themselves and their loved ones.
- Partnering with the Officer James Kuzak Benefit Fund for the Annual 5220 Bike Rally
- Writing outreach articles in the monthly Pennsylvania motorcycle magazine Thunder Roads
- Supporting various motorcycle events, bike runs and more
