Our Core Values
WE ARE A TEAM.
We capitalize on the creativity, energy, and passion that working together creates. Working together creates a more enriching work environment and generates better results.
WE ARE A FAMILY.
Our relationships go deeper than simply being teammates at work. We genuinely care for and about each other.
WE ARE KIND, POLITE, AND COURTEOUS.
We are always friendly and show a concern for others. We value a culture of openness in which everyone is treated fairly and where everyone has an opportunity to contribute.
WE ARE HONEST.
Open, honest communication is the best foundation for any relationship. We always act with integrity in our relationships. It is important to be loyal, friendly, compassionate, and a good listener.
WE WORK HARD.
We “bring it” every day. While skill, talent, and knowledge are necessary for producing good results, passion is the energy that fuels truly extraordinary performance.
WE PRACTICE EXCELLENCE.
We always strive to be the best in everything we do. We improve our performance continually and stress the importance of quality and productivity.
WE CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY.
Joy and laughter bring us closer together and make us look forward to coming to work each day.
WE ARE ACCOUNTABLE.
Holding ourselves accountable for results is a reflection of our personal commitment to our mission.
WE ARE GRATEFUL.
We are always thankful and appreciative of all opportunities that come our way.
WE ARE HUMBLE.
We are not arrogant nor do we treat people differently than how we would like to be treated. We are always respectful of everyone.
WE ARE RESPECTFUL.
We treat people with respect and dignity. We embrace diversity and diverse opinions.
WE ARE INNOVATIVE.
We exist in an ever-changing world where the needs of our clients and our business never stay the same. We are always coming up with new ideas and new methods.
WE ARE PROJECT MANAGERS.
We always plan, execute, and evaluate our projects. We make sure we clearly communicate expectations.
WE ARE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH OUR CLIENTS.
We are all on one team. Everyone has an important role to play to achieve greatness. We are more than just a law firm.
WE ALWAYS PRACTICE THE WANT TO!
Having a want to attitude propels us to success. We will not rest until we meet our goals, whatever it takes.
WE ARE RESPONSIVE.
Our clients expect us to respond to their questions and concerns quickly. Getting back to our clients promptly is one way we demonstrate our sensitivity to their issues and how much we care about them.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT MEDIOCRITY.
We take pride in the quality of everything we touch and do. We will always work to be better tomorrow than we are today. We will not settle. We will always think big.
WE TAKE RESPONSIBILITY.
We take personal responsibility when it comes to meeting the needs of our clients and our business. It is never someone else’s job or someone else’s fault. We do not make excuses. If we see it, we own it, and we make sure it gets done.
WE HONOR OUR COMMITMENTS.
We follow through on our promises and we consistently follow-up to ensure that everything is completed in accordance with the commitment we made.
WE SET AND MANAGE EXPECTATIONS.
We judge situations not by what happens, but by how they compare to what we expected to happen. Nearly every misunderstanding can be traced to a difference in expectations. We have learned to create mutually understood expectations in every situation.
WE SEE PROBLEMS AS OPPORTUNITIES.
Every so-called problem has within it the seeds of a valuable lesson. We take advantage of these lessons to become better, smarter, and more effective. In fact, the greater the challenge, the bigger the opportunity for growth.
WE EMBRACE CHANGE.
Nothing stays the same. Especially in our business. We are excited by change, and are energized and inspired by both the challenges and the possibilities it creates. The better and faster we are at adapting to change, the stronger and more successful we become as a company. Change provides us with unique opportunities for competitive advantage.
WE PRACTICE BLAMELESS PROBLEM SOLVING.
Blame has no place in a high-performance organization. We fix mistakes by focusing on solutions, not on whose fault it was. We use these situations to learn, and we apply that learning by improving our processes to reduce the likelihood of repeating the mistake.
WE ARE PERFORMANCE DRIVEN.
We appreciate effort, but we reward and celebrate results. We set challenging goals and we do not shy away from accountability.
WE CELEBRATE SUCCESS.
We build people up by giving meaningful (timely, specific, impactful) acknowledgement and appreciation and by celebrating both individual and team successes.
WE HAVE FUN.
Though we approach our mission with passion and commitment, we never take ourselves too seriously. Fun helps us keep perspective. Laugh often!
