At Cannon & Dunphy S.C., we are committed to helping others. As personal injury attorneys, our team is dedicated to meeting client's legal needs during the most challenging times of their lives. But our compassion extends past the courtroom. As a law firm, we are an integral part of the local community, serving charitable organizations in Milwaukee and throughout Wisconsin. Three of our contributions to the community include the Guest House of Milwaukee, the Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin and Hunger Task Force. Read more about them below.
WILEORC (Wisconsin Injured Law Enforcement Officers Resources Council)
Cannon & Dunphy S.C. proudly supports our law enforcement officers who are injured while putting their lives on the line in the service of the community. One way we do this is through our support of WILEORC. WILEORC is committed to helping disabled and injured law enforcement officers in Wisconsin. Founded in 2014, WILEORC is the first charity of its kind in this state. Some of the services it provides for wounded law enforcement officers include financial assistance, medical help, financial planning, educational assistance, legal referrals, and peer support.

Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin
Cannon & Dunphy S.C. is proud to support the ICan Bike Camp, an event organized by the Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin (ASSEW). Our firm helped provide safety helmets for children with Autism and other developmental disabilities as they learned to ride conventional 2-wheel bicycles on their own. ASSEW is committed to raising awareness throughout the local community and to improving the lives of all those affected by autism.
Refashion for Life
Cannon & Dunphy S.C. is a proud sponsor of Refashion for Life, a fashion show held every August. This show features both fashionable home products, including hardware, flooring, cabinetry, and more, as well as the latest in fall apparel.

CommonGround Ministry, Inc. provides physical, spiritual and emotional support to people living with HIV/AIDS through Elena’s House, its transitional and end of life home. The primary purpose of Elena's House is to provide a home for individuals with HIV/AIDS who are facing homelessness, or who have become too sick to live independently. Our goal is to help residents restore their spiritual and physical health through emotional support, assistance with drug regimens, nutritious meals, and safe and peaceful housing. For the sickest members of our community, this is a home where they can face death with dignity. In addition, Elena's House staff and volunteers encourage residents to achieve personal goals such as finishing their education, returning to the work force, or living independently in the community.
