Our Values


The “Values” to us are a lot more than “words on a page.” They are the result of thousands – yes, thousands – of hours of attorney and staff time creating them and we consider it both a challenge and a privilege to live by and live up to these values.


Our Values:

Our firm adheres to a set of strong firm values.  In this area, we insist that all lawyers follow these principles and, in addition, actively support them.  

The “Values” to us are a lot more than “words on a page.”  They are the result of thousands – yes, thousands – of hours of attorney and staff time creating them and we consider it both a challenge and a privilege to live by and live up to these values. 

Ultimately, without our values, all we are is roughly 50 lawyers sharing office space until someone gets a better offer.  Our values are what makes us, us, so to speak.  

OUR CORE PURPOSE: 

 “BUILD A HIGHLY MOTIVATED AND SUCCESSFUL LAW FIRM THAT IS PROPELLED BY THE ENTHUSIASM AND COMMITMENT OF ITS ATTORNEYS.”

OUR CORE VALUES: 
  • Deliver outstanding service to our clients.
  • Incorporate honor, integrity, and fairness into all aspects of our business.
  • Insist on plain unvarnished honesty in all matters.
  • Attack complacency.
  • Put the Firm first: our success depends upon effective teamwork.
  • Ardent support for our purpose and values.
  • ​Do the right thing even when it hurts. 
OUR CORE BUSINESS GOAL: 

“To be widely regarded as one of the premier law firms in the United States. Our success will be measured not only by our profitability, size, and client base but also by the depth of our clients' satisfaction and the loyalty and commitment of our attorneys to our firm.”

Our Mission:

Building off of our Values, the Firm has a mission statement which we all live by:

To ignite, nourish, and build careers in an environment of enthusiasm, loyalty, and commitment.

Notably, the mission points out what we are all about – namely, the simple realization that each lawyer alone is just about nothing, but together we are a powerful force for ourselves, for society, and for our clients.
