Community

Cohen and Thomas is a firm that prides itself in its roots in the local community. In addition to taking on several pro bono cases, we sponsor teams and events that bolster civic pride and participation.

We are an annual sponsor of a Derby tradition: the Commodore Hull Annual 5K Thanksgiving Race.

The Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day 5K Road Race Committee stages its annual event through the historic downtown districts of Derby and Shelton. The race started in 2002 and proceeds from the event benefit the Boys and Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley.

Started in 2002 as a Thanksgiving tradition, the race which is limited to 750 runners has raised close to $100,000 for the Boys and Girls Club.

We also believe that participation in sports teams builds character and community and adds to the value of a town. To that end, we sponsor various local teams of both youth and adult teams of various sports.
