I believe that being a lawyer is about more than just the business of law. We believe we have both the ability and the responsibility to use our legal knowledge to serve our client’s best interests and to serve our community. At our Firm, the most important ethic is that of integrity; I believe we have a responsibility to say “no” when someone does not need to hire us for a matter, but if they do need us, we will represent their interests with vigor and loyalty.
