Victoria Tsoong (LL.M. '10) and a team from the law firm of Foley & Mansfield has returned from a week-long service trip to Durazno, Guatemala. The original mission was to build and repair latrines for this small impoverished community, but upon arrival, residents shared a greater need for smokeless stoves. Most of the village’s single-room homes only had open-flame fire pits that engulfed each home with smoke while meals were prepared. The F&M team constructed ten new stoves and supplied the community with materials to complete another 30 smokeless stoves.
The residents of Durazno were extremely grateful and bonded closely with the F&M service team of 19 employees who ranged from senior partners to case assistants. The Foley & Mansfield Foundation sponsored this service trip as another opportunity for its attorneys and staff to give back to those who are less fortunate, a core value emphasized and embraced at F&M.
As an associate at F&M, Tsoong focuses on consumer practice and litigation, general liability and civil litigation, and product liability.
