Our attorneys continually strive for excellence in knowledge, experience, professional conduct and client service. We take on leadership roles as officers, section leaders, and committee leaders in county, state, and national bar organizations. We are faculty members for continuing legal education seminars and give presentations on many areas of the law. We serve on advisory committees to the state and federal courts to participate in ongoing efforts to improve court rules and the efficiency and fairness of the judicial system.

It is gratifying that as a result of our efforts, we regularly receive recognition for the achievements of the firm and our attorneys. Examples include:
