Community Involvement

Supporting the Community of Indian River County

The Child Welfare Legal Team at The Chesnutt Law Firm is heavily involved in supporting the community in Indian River County Florida. Their involvement starts with helping their clients achieve the best results in their cases and extends to working with many local organizations and non-profits.


Susan Chesnutt started a podcast in 2020, From Foster Care to Family Law: A Child Welfare Focus which engages thought leaders in the community about ways to help struggling families.  She has produced over 20 episodes with content ranging from helping people going through divorce to raising awareness about human trafficking and introducing non-profit organizations.  She is now on the board of Team Success Enterprises as the Director of Advocacy.  This opportunity has led to even more involvement with other organizations and non-profits throughout the county.


Listed below are links to all of the organizations that the Child Welfare Legal Team are supporting.  We encourage all of our clients and peers to learn more about them and get involved with any organizations that they believe in helping.
