golf cart on courseBrousseau Naftis & Massingill is pleased to continue our tradition of supporting the Dallas Bar Association’s annual golf tournament by helping players travel from the tee to the green—in other words, by sponsoring the event’s golf carts!

The April 29 tournament benefits Entrepreneurs in Community Lawyering, the Dallas Bar Association’s own incubator whose mission is to train lawyers to support modest-income individuals and families. These types of clients earn too much to qualify for pro bono legal services, but at the same time do not have the resources to hire attorneys whose hourly rates might be unrealistic for them. The incubator was founded in the fall of 2019 and accepts up to 10 lawyers annually who have been practicing less than five years.

The firm’s sponsorship carries on the legacy of the firm’s founder, Maryann Sarris Brousseau, who passed away in October 2020.

“This tournament has been a firm tradition for several years, and we are proud to support programs that promote access to justice,” said managing attorney Matthew Naftis. “We are honored to carry on Maryann’s legacy, not only through our client service and professionalism, but also through our firm’s dedication to the community.”

Maryann served The Hockaday School on its board of trustees and chaired the centennial campaign, which resulted in a $20 million gift from a single donor, among other donations. She was also an active member of Dallas’ Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, serving as the first and only woman president of the Parish Council, in addition to serving on the leadership boards of countless other Dallas charities.

The tournament is open to everyone, and we encourage all those who are interested in participating to register here. We hope to see you on the links on April 29.
