We believe in service to the communities we live in and our profession. Mark Twain stated that, “A good lawyer knows the law; a clever one takes the judge to lunch.” We consider it a client and civic obligation to be active in Federal, State and local bar associations and legal organizations. In our view, it is at these events that lawyers interact with judiciary and counsel – thereby forging bonds of communication and trust. Beyond that, we are a firm that is committed to charity and sustainability. We encourage all of our lawyers to be leaders in their local bar associations and community groups.
