We have strived to distinguish ourselves and the legal work we produce on the basis of its quality. We intentionally limited our practice to the areas in which we felt we could achieve and maintain a level of excellence that would endure and exemplify the firm. Our goal was simple: Do excellent work consistently. The formula has proved successful and through dedication and hard work, the firm has grown and flourished.
Excellence is infectious. It spreads from the work product itself to the service we offer our clients, to the quality of people who work here, to the feeling of support and teamwork in the office, to the position that our firm holds in the community.
Excellence generates pride. Few personal feelings offer more satisfaction than the understanding that one has done work of exemplary quality. Excellence is the source of satisfaction that comes from achieving a lofty goal or winning a hard race or overcoming a difficult obstacle.
Excellence, however, has a price; everything worthwhile does. Fortunately, the price of excellence is within all of our means. To be excellent, one must dedicate one’s self to doing the absolute best job possible, all the time. That means putting forth the extra bit of effort, the extra level of care and concern. It means working as a team to constantly look for and correct the errors of others and graciously accepting corrections of our work made by others with only the understanding that the overall work product of the firm is improved by such action. It means researching a little longer, listening a little closer, thinking a little deeper, communicating a little clearer, proof reading a little harder, and above all, always asking “Is this work the best that it can be? Can I make it better?” Excellence isn’t free or easy, but it’s worth the price.
Perfection may not be attainable, for we are but human, but excellence is, for we are humans who strive for it.
