Happy Holidays from Wiggins, Childs, Pantazis, Fisher, & Goldfarb!

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home. Affordable housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities and the lawyers at WCPFG are happy to have contributed to such an important aspect of our community.
