Our Values

Our values drive our actions and our mission as a firm. The most important single factor in our continued success is faithful adherence to our beliefs.

A Passion for Excellence

Excellence has always been at our core. We are prepared to take on the most challenging cases and we have an uncompromising determination to achieve excellence in everything we do. We focus diligently on the things that we know we do best, the honesty to admit when we’re wrong, and the determination to get it right.  We believe that problem-solving, teamwork, and leadership results in the ongoing improvement in our organization, and we pride ourselves on having pioneered many of the laws, practices and techniques that have become standard in our profession.


Integrity, Honesty and Transparency

We demonstrate honesty, fairness, openness and integrity in all our interactions. We expect our attorneys to maintain high ethical standards in everything they do. Our firm has a heritage of acting with utmost honesty and unfailing reliability. We have the wisdom earned through countless cases and generations of relationships, the confidence to be open to ideas and opinions, and the insight to understand that diversity makes us stronger. After nearly four decades, our core values remains intact. And, we have no intention of that changing.


Collaboration and Teamwork

We have an entrepreneurial culture based on a concept of “performance with humility” creating a healthy environment where people genuinely like coming to work in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust, with true teamwork the norm. We believe in the deep collaboration and cross-pollination of our attorneys, which allow us to deliver game-changing solutions in a way that others cannot. Our firm uses a team approach to manage cases efficiently. We know that our clients benefit when working with a team of varied backgrounds and experiences. While individual creativity and leadership is always encouraged, we know that more times than not, team effort produces the best results.


People First

We build lasting relationships based on mutual respect and doing the right thing. We are committed to a culture where people come first, before profit or personal gain. Our people first culture fosters the advancement, development and personal well being of our clients as well as of our team members. We encourage individuals to be their best, we support people who are experiencing difficult circumstances, and we celebrate their victories.


Loyalty, Trust and Respect

We acknowledge and respect the differences in each other, and provide a safe, supportive environment in which everyone is valued and encouraged to engage in open, two-way communication. We assume a high level of trust and personal responsibility in all our relationships. Each client's interests are paramount to us; we respect and maintain their privacy and confidences. Our firm’s loyalty is never compromised. We understand and are sensitive to the trauma associated with divorce. Our clients' concerns are not trivialized, and we take great care to achieve their goals with the utmost discretion.


Diversity, Equality and Inclusion

We stand strong for diversity and equality. We believe that the best way the world works is when everybody is in. Nobody is out. Creativity comes from seeking and inspiring diversity in all its dimensions. We recognize the unique value and skills every individual brings to our firm. Diversity is about inclusion. Our employees represent a talented and diverse team. Achieving the full potential of this diversity is fundamental to our competitive success. A key element in our diversity policy is our firm's long-standing commitment to equal opportunity.


Going Above and Beyond

Despite our success, we are never satisfied with the status quo. We’re competitive. We dig deep and fight hard. We are disciplined and tireless in our due diligence. We value self-motivated people who are invested in self improvement. Our attorneys share a relentless drive to provide exceptional service for our clients. We set new standards. Skillfully execute. Deliver results. It’s what we’re known for. We are passionately and personally committed to delivering above and beyond.
