The painting will be on permanent display in the Ancient and Modern Indian exhibition of the Houston Museum of Fine Arts.

  • Members of Zimmerman, Axelrad, Meyer, Stern & Wise, P.C. participated in the Houston Young Lawyers Association's Helping Elder Hands Project.  The project was a one-day event in coordination with Meals on Wheels of Greater Houston to assist senior citizens with homes in need of repair and maintenance.  Each volunteer group was assigned to the home of an elderly person who has signed up to receive help from Houston Helping Elder Hands.  Volunteers from the Firm went out and helped by both performing basic "handy man" tasks and simply interacting with the elderly citizens.  The project focused on a particular geographic area in Houston where there are a number of elderly people in need.
