Charleston, SC (Law Firm Newswire) November 14, 2017 – While the Steinberg Law Firm is best known for protecting the rights of injured people, it also takes pride in its service to their local community. For over 90 years, the firm has made it their mission to give back to local organizations across the lowcountry who are equally dedicated to improving the lives of others. The Steinberg Law Firm Community Fund Program has made a commitment to support the local community with the help of its entire staff.

The Steinberg Law Firm’s Fund Program is just one of the many ways in which the personal injury firm gives back to its local community. The program is special because it is exclusively led by the firm’s staff. The entire team is thrilled to have a program that allows complete contribution to the organizations that are most important to them. The Steinberg Law Firm’s staff is pleased to select and donate to the Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic, which provides free medical care for low income, uninsured adults who live or work on John, James or Wadmalaw Island.

The clinic is staffed by 34 volunteer doctors and 24 volunteer nurses to provide the public with primary and family medical care. The patient services include treatment of diabetes, hypertension, coronary disease, depression and other illnesses. The clinic also provides low or no-cost generic prescriptions, along with free imaging and scans given by Roper St. Francis Hospital.

Furthermore, the clinic provides free weekly onsite clinics including an orthopedic clinic, dermatology clinic, gynecology clinic and psychiatry clinic. The clinic also offers free health classes. On an as-needed basis, the clinic refers its patients for free treatment at one of 19 subspecialty offices that are off-site.

A longtime advocate for injured people, Attorney Malcolm Crosland passionately serves on the clinic’s board of directors. Attorney Crosland says, “On behalf of the Steinberg Law Firm, I am honored to present the donation to the Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic, which has made significant contributions to the health and well-being of adults, who might not otherwise have access to medical care.”

He is also actively involved in organizations that advocate for the injured. Crosland currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Workers Injury Law & Advocacy Group and previously served as President for the nonprofit Injured Workers’ Advocates, a South Carolina associations of lawyers who exclusively represent injured workers in Workers’ Compensation cases.

At Steinberg Law Firm, Crosland litigates cases on behalf of personal injury victims in civil court and represents workers hurt on the job before the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission and U.S Department of Labor, earning Crosland multiple recognitions in the annual Best Lawyers in America and Super Lawyers lists.

Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic began construction earlier this spring to build a new facility consisting of seven exam rooms where clinic medical staff will continue to provide for the health and wellness needs of uninsured adults. The new building is being built directly behind the current clinic’s location at 3226 Maybank Highway on Johns Island. The new clinic is scheduled to open its doors in the spring of 2018. The current clinic site will maintain its normal operation during the construction period.

Clinic Board Chairman and Volunteer Physician, Dr. Jim Hayes, said, “We are excited about the construction of a new clinic building to solve our space issues, and I hope secondary gains will increase operational efficiencies and perhaps expand our service area. My sincere thank you to our volunteers, grantors and donors for their support.”
