Associates are taught the importance of cultivating strong and meaningful relationships with both clients and professional staff. They are also encouraged to invest their personal and professional time in giving back to the communities we serve. Additionally, we help our lawyers to join and actively participate in professional organizations in order to learn more about their craft and to build thriving professional networks.
Twice annually for their first three years and once annually each subsequent year, associates receive formal reviews in which firm leadership recognizes their achievements, constructively evaluates growth opportunities and encourages them to provide feedback on their experience. Each associate creates a Professional Development Plan with assistance from his or her mentor and the Director of Professional Development. These development plans set professional skill development goals. We believe that investing in the growth and development of the firm’s new attorneys will continue a tradition of providing superior service to our clients and to our community.
