Berlin Law Firm is located at the historic Odd Fellows Building in Sarasota. The building, located at 200 N. Washington Blvd, was opened on September 2, 1940 as the home of the Sarasota Odd Fellows. The Independent Order of Odd Fellows is an organization which promotes personal and social development. The command of the IOOF is to “visit the sick, relieve the distressed, bury the dead and educate the orphan”. Specifically, IOOF are dedicated to the following purposes:
- To improve and elevate the character of mankind by promoting the principles of friendship, love, truth, faith, hope, charity and universal justice.
- To help make the world a better place to live by aiding each other in times of need and by organizing charitable projects and activities that would benefit the less fortunate, the youth, the elderly, the environment and the community in every way possible.
- To promote good will and harmony amongst peoples and nations through the principle of universal fraternity, holding the belief that all men and women regardless of race, nationality, religion, social status, gender, rank and station are brothers and sisters
- To promote a wholesome fraternal experience without violence, vices and discrimination of every form.
