Community Involvement

The Bratton Firm, P.C. supports, participates in, and is dedicated to several charitable and nonprofit organizations in our communities. R. Louis Bratton is very passionate about and has personally been involved with the organizations identified below. Mr. Bratton has been a longtime volunteer, including participating on the Board of Directors and as a two-time President of the West Austin Youth Association (WAYA). Currently Mr. Bratton is the Director of the Arc of the Capital Area.

In addition to the many pro bono cases handled by our firm, we encourage our employees to lead balanced lives through public involvement and charitable giving. Without the time and effort of our employees, we would not be able to make so many important commitments to the community.

Real wealth and a meaningful life are solely gained through the service of others. We proudly support the charities listed below.
