Ball Janik Partners with Elevate Technology Group to Help Oregon Residents Devastated by Wildfires, Attorney At Law Magazine

In a time of uncertainty, internet connectivity and electrical power have become imperative to our way of life, including to our work, education, and connection with loved ones. Yet the wildfires in Oregon along the Cascade Mountain range have left communities, neighborhoods, and schools utterly destroyed. Thankfully, community volunteers and businesses like Ball Janik LLP, Elevate Technology Group, Takoda’s Restaurant, CONNX, Emerald Broadband, BendBroadband and IOIOBox have come together to help the community.

It’s one thing to see it on TV but until you see it and experience it like we have, I don’t think you will ever know what it’s like.”
