E.W. Dann Stevens -     “Helping the less fortunate is part of the human equation,” believes E.W. Dann Stevens, a senior partner at Williams, Stevens, McCarville & Frizzell P.C. Law Firm. Since 1952, Dann has exemplified that belief by volunteering for the United Way and his community.

Dann’s attitude that one should give back to the community in which one has prospered has driven him to serve in other aspects of the community.

One of the founders of the Food Bank of Western New York, Dann takes part in all of its planning and development-related activities. Currently he serves as a the Chairperson of the Board.

Along with the United Way and the Food Bank, Dann finds time to work with other organizations; The Buffalo Federation of Neighborhood Centers, Bob Lanier Center, Education Foundation for Greater Buffalo, Goodwill Industries, Junior Achievement, Legal Aid Bureau and United Negro College Fund.

Dann received the Burt Flickinger Community Award and the Root-Simpson Award granted by the New York State Bar Association for his volunteer work at the Food Bank in 1998.

In 1999 the United Way of Buffalo and Erie County honored him with the One-Person Award, presented to the individual that exemplifies the credo that “One Person Can Make a Difference.”

Within his law practice Dann concentrates on estate planning and administration, trusts, business and financial matters. Outside of work, he is dedicated to his weekly tennis dates and doing all he can to give back to the community...making him Forever Young and Active!
