When Beasley won his $8 million verdict against the Philadelphia Housing Authority for the deaths by fire of six children, he went out and bought hundreds of smoke alarms and donated them to PHA, ensuring there would be no more needless tragedies.
These are just a few examples of the compassionate, caring mindset lived out here at The Beasley Firm.
The Beasley Annual Christmas Party
For years, Jim Beasley Sr. held an annual Christmas party for orphans where lawyers dressed up as Santa and handed out toys and clothes. Over the years, Beasley also bought hundreds of air-conditioners and gave them away to people who couldn't afford them.
The greatest recipient of Jim Beasley's generosity was his alma mater, Temple University. Beasley donated $20 million to Temple's Law School, subsequently renamed the Temple University James E. Beasley School of Law.
The gift was earmarked to provide full scholarships for highly qualified but economically disadvantaged law students, as well as to endow several faculty chairs at the law school.
From 1998 to the present, Beasley Scholarships were awarded to hundreds of Temple law students, totaling millions of dollars in tuition for hundreds of students. Beasley provided this gift in honor of the great opportunities the school gave him in advancing his legal career.
