Hagaman humbly acknowledged the award by stating, "I accept this not on behalf of myself, but on behalf of the 450 staff at my Firm, WithumSmith+Brown, who - as individuals or in teams - are out almost every weekend, walking, bicycling, running, or parading with their pets, all for the sake of helping others in need. You see, WithumSmith+Brown is committed to fulfilling our social responsibility to the community, and this ideal has been woven into the moral fabric of the Firm for nearly 40 years."
