Dedicated To The Education And Empowerment Of Our Children.

Damian & Valori LLP | Culmo Trial Attorneys has a strong commitment to community service. Its attorneys are significantly involved in pro bono child advocacy through the Guardian Ad Litem office and Lawyers for Children America. The Firm’s attorneys have volunteered hundreds of hours each year advocating for abused children in Florida’s state dependency proceedings.

The Firm is a proud supporter of The SEED School of Miami, a college-preparatory, public boarding school for South Florida Students. The School, co-founded by Melanie Damian, is dedicated to providing an outstanding educational program that empowers students to be successful, both academically, socially, in college, and beyond.

In addition, the Firm’s principals, together with others in the community, founded the non-profit Educate Tomorrow to meet the educational needs of children. Educate Tomorrow believes that the best way to end the cycle of poverty is through education. Their mission is to make education an attainable goal for the most disadvantaged in our world, so that all may be afforded the possibilities that can be achieved through learning. We strive to reach out to these individuals and provide them inspiration, guidance, and support and lead them on the path of life-long learning.

Based in Miami, Florida, Educate Tomorrow supports 15-23 year olds, who are aging out of the foster care system, by matching them with mentors. These mentors in turn help the young people to enroll in college and training programs, find housing and jobs, as well as apply for educational and social assistance that may be available to them.
