Communication is multi-dimensional and must be timely, professional, and transparent. Effective communication promptly informs the client and seeks her advice as a matter is handled. Within our ranks, open communication fosters team work and shared information so that the best-informed decisions can be made.
Excellence in representation requires thoughtful understanding of the scope of retention, thorough investigation of the facts, and skillful handling of the legal issues. Excellence pays attention to detail, never leaves anything to chance, and takes nothing for granted.
Acting with integrity is the measure of a lawyer’s character and the highest aspiration of the firm. It informs our interaction as faithful stewards of the law and is reflected in diligent work, honest reporting, genuine relationships, and the trustworthiness of our advice and advocacy.

Strategic advice drives the resolution goals of each case.

Our informed strategic advice is the differentiator that sets the firm apart from others. +
