Mona Lisa Wallace, Bill Graham, Whitney Wallace Williams, along with nearly all of our attorneys and staff and their families at W&G, are committed to giving back to the community and to others throughout the country that are less fortunate.
Partner Mona Lisa and her husband, Lee, support numerous community nonprofits, businesses, and colleges including the Catawba College, Salisbury Community Foundation, Lee Street Theater, the Community Care Center, Rowan Helping Ministries, Hood Seminary, Historic Salisbury Foundation, First Presbyterian Church, Rowan Salisbury School Systems' Wallace Education Forum, and Novant's Wallace Cancer Center. Outside of Salisbury, Mona contributes to public interest advocacy organizations which aim to better protect her clients' rights, including the non-profit legal organization, Public Justice, where she has previously served as President.
Partner Bill Graham and his wife Shari are actively engaged in many local nonprofit organizations, charities, and education institutions in their community, including their alma-mater, Catawba College. They are supporters of other education institutions including Livingstone College, Salisbury High, Salisbury Academy, and Partners in Learning, and youth organizations including Crosby Scholars, Young Life, Boy Scouts of America, and American Legion Baseball.

The Grahams also participate in many national charities that have touched their lives including: Susan G.

Funds raised benefit cancer research, land mine victims, and other charitable organizations that were passions of the Princess.
