The Oak City Law and Angel Oak Creative families gathered together for a holiday luncheon at the office the week before Christmas. Everyone brought a yummy dish and we all got to enjoy one another’s company while celebrating the most wonderful time of the year. There’s nothing like a little red velvet cake to put you in the holiday spirit!
Curamericas Global is an international NGO working to support and empower community based health care in developing countries. Curamericas Global currently works in Guatemala, Liberia and Kenya addressing the causes of maternal and child mortality. Its work is ongoing in Liberia where its focus has shifted from maternal and child health to Ebola prevention and monitoring. In June of 2014, Rob Fields was part of a fact finding trip to Guatemala evaluating the work of Curamericas Guatemala in providing maternal and child health solutions and interventions in rural Guatemala among various Mayan communities.
Oak City Law is privileged to be a supporter of the annual Band Together benefit concert held in Raleigh, North Carolina. From Lyle Lovett to Hall and Oates, to Michael Franti and the B-52’s, Band Together never ceases to amaze us by bringing stellar performers to Raleigh to support wonderful causes. The 2014 main event raised money for Communities in Schools of Durham and Wake County, and the 2013 main event partnered with the Tammy Lynn Center for Developmental Disabilities. In 2015, Band Together will be working with StepUp Ministry. We are proud to say we are supporters of Band Together and all of these meaningful causes!
Oak City Law LLP is located in the beautiful Blount Street Historic District adjacent to Historic Oakwood, Mordecai, and Capital Park, all in the Northern sector of Raleigh’s thriving downtown. In March of 2013, partner Rob Fields and his wife Beth purchased 702 North Blount Street from William Peace University. Since Oak City Law’s move to 702 North Blount Street, we have learned many interesting and exciting facts about this historic house that was built in 1910. Before Peace College owned the house (which later turned into William Peace University), this house was home to many families, including families of Elsie Robertson, W.T. Ward, Dorothy Blackwelder, and Virginia Nowell. From time to time, various relatives show up to re-live stories and experiences from their youth. One visitor related how her father had “cracked” the marble fireplace mantle decades ago by stoking the fire until it became too hot. All we know today is that the mantle is marble and it is cracked giving it a unique historic character.
Today 702 North Blount Street is the home of Oak City Law and Angel Oak Creative, where the law and creativity collide. Some of the reasons we love the Historic Blount Street district so much: The Station, PieBird, Seaboard Station, Raleigh City Farm, BREW, Nicole’s Studio, Person Street Pharmacy, walking to work, the trees, and so many other reasons! We would love for you to pay us a visit and take in the history for yourself! Get directions here. On any given Monday at noon or shortly after, you probably can find Rob and Sam around the corner grabbing a $5 burger at The Station. Please come say “Hello!”
Oak City Law had its first annual Puerto Rican boil. All in attendance were well fed and had a great time.
