Firm Culture

 

The firm culture has been built and is maintained by everyone committing to living our core values. These are:

 

Positive People Create Positive Outcomes: Positive words and actions manifest the same. We speak well of our team members, our clients, our opponents, as well as our competition, and always treat all with the respect that is due.

 

Independence should be Nurtured: To be successful, we must be independent thinkers — so independent that when passionate about something, we’re willing to bet against the consensus. To accomplish that, we put our honest thoughts on the table, be radically open-minded, allowing the best ideas to rise to the top.


Everyone Deserves Our Best: If the result will only be “okay,” we look for a better option, and pivot quickly, as to not waste precious time. We give our best effort every time because every client and coworker deserve our best effort. And no firm can do it better than we can.


Resilience Makes the Difference: In our line of work, we will oftentimes face obstacles that prevent us from being successful through our first plan. We don’t quit. We keep working until we find a new path to the best outcome possible given the facts and the law.

 

Commons Bonds Make Us Better: We look for our common bonds no matter what in the world might otherwise divide. We are not just shaping a law firm; we are building a law firm that has the power to help shape how people are viewed and treated in the world. All team member opinions are needed, welcome and treated as equal.
