Law firm to match donations at NCBJ to honor Las Vegas shooting victims

In an effort to honor the victims of the horrific shooting Sunday in Las Vegas, Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones, a law firm based in Los Angeles, has decided not to hold its traditional “after party” at this year’s National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges in Las Vegas. Instead, the law firm will be donating the party funds to United Blood Services in Las Vegas. The firm will contribute up to an additional $50,000 to match the donations made by any NCBJ Conference attendee.

Upon arriving at the conference to pick up registration materials, there will be several donation boxes for attendees to drop off a check made out to United Blood Services (cash cannot be accepted). Checks collected by the end of the day on Tuesday, Oct. 10, will be matched by Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones.
