DALLAS – Sommerman, McCaffity, Quesada & Geisler name partner Laura Benitez Geisler will serve as the honorary chair of the Denim & Diamonds event, organized by the Legal Hospice of Texas, an organization that provides timely and compassionate legal services to low-income residents living with HIV or other terminal illnesses.
The event will take place Sept. 7 at Gilley’s Dallas and include casino games, a silent auction, food and beverages.
“Every person deserves access to legal representation and the work that is done by Legal Hospice of Texas is important to help serve the needs of people facing the extraordinary challenge of fighting terminal illness,” said Ms. Geisler. “I’m excited to be a part of this event, and I’m excited to raise awareness of this group’s mission.”
