The Verrill Dana law firm of Westport has announced that attorney Robert Laplaca is the recipient of the 2017 Roger A. Putnam Community Service Award for his charitable work and his role as a firefighter with the Weston Volunteer Fire Department.

In a statement released by Verrill Dana, the firm commends Laplaca for his 15 years of service on the all-volunteer fire department, where he and other firefighters are on call 24/7, 365 days a year. They also commend Laplaca for leading the department’s Explorer and Junior Firefighter programs.

“We are proud of Rob, and the rest of the firm’s attorneys and staff, who continue our long tradition of giving back and strengthening our communities,” said K.C. Jones, managing partner of Verrill Dana. “Rob embodies public service and devotes substantial efforts to his community, including responding to between 50 and 100 calls per year at all hours of the day and night. We thank him for his commitment and hope that his efforts inspire others to support the causes that are important to them.”

The Roger A. Putnam Community Service Award is given annually to recognize a Verrill Dana attorney or staff member who embodies the spirit of community service through volunteerism, leadership inside or outside the firm, fund raising, and advocacy. Each year, a $1,000 donation is given to the charity of the honoree’s choice. This year’s donation will go to the Weston Volunteer Fire Department.
