The Collins Brown Barkett attorneys and staff actively participate in the Florida Dept. of Transportation “Adopt-A-Highway” program by maintaining a two-mile stretch of A-1-A to keep it free of debris. We also periodically spend workdays building homes with the Indian River Habitat for Humanity to help hard working neighbors achieve safe, affordable housing for themselves and their families.
